A while ago, I spent a happy hour or two or three with the parkrun website and a spreadsheet to see whether there were any UK parkruns which had never been run by one of the eight members of the Cowell Club*. It turned out that there were 17.
A conversation at Woking parkrun on Saturday made me wonder: now that there are 17 Cowell Club members, are there still any UK parkruns which have never been run by a Cowell Clubber?
A happy hour or two or three with the parkrun website and a spreadsheet, and I believe I know the answer. There are, and these are they:
North West England
- Derry City
Overseas Military Bases
- Camp Bastion
South East England
- Folkestone (I guess we were all at the Woking inaugural this weekend!)
South West England
*An unofficial club for tourists who have run at 100 or more parkrun different events**
**Two versions exist at the moment, the Global Cowell (100 or more different events globally) and UK Cowell (100 or more different UK events)***
***My stats are based on Global Cowell Club members****
****Had I used UK Cowell Club members, Eglinton parkrun in Scotland would also show as un-run.
