Cabbage Patch 4 (ish)

At 8am this morning, I didn’t know this race existed.  By noon, it had been entered on my list of races to repeat.  Its distance may only be approximate, but it was small*, local**, low key***, cheap**** and absolutely teeming with familiar faces.

Thank you, King Danny, for the (inadvertent) heads up.

* Around 100 runners

** Organised by the Stragglers Running Club and based at the Cabbage Patch Pub in Twickenham

*** Manual registration and timing, marshals at key intersections, white arrows on the ground to mark the way and race numbers co-opted from the Claygate Country Five*****

**** The entry fee was either a Secret Santa gift (in exchange for a gift at the end) or £5 for the race with no gift.

***** Now on my list of races to try

    You’re doing a podcast? About Parkrun?
    “Presented by BBC Radio 2’s Vassos Alexander and parkrun uber-tourist Louise Ayling, it’s coming your way very soon!”
    How excited am I?
    So pleased. xx
