Flat. Fast. Picturesque. Spectator friendly. And there are even ducklings.
If it weren’t 280 miles from home, I’d go back. Often.
But it is. So I shan’t.
Which is a shame, because I really want to know if anyone is ever going to beat the (male) course record of 14:43, set by first-time parkrunner, Yared Hagos. Who lapped me at the beginning of my lap two (his lap three) and then disappeared into the distance, finishing nearly two minutes ahead of his nearest rival.
And I’d also like to try to persuade Brian Cowell to take me on a tour of the North Eastern parkruns. Because I gather that they include some real gems. One of which is surely Riverside.
