parkrun touristing

Since starting to parkrun in 2013, as well as enjoying the local parkruns, I have enjoyed visiting parkruns further afield.

Ringing the pb bell at Tring- my first visit there was set as a course pb so they told me it would count!

I tend to post about each new one I visit, so the links are (will be) included here. Ones I am planning on visiting won’t have links just yet. As I have been to some more than once I’ve put them in alphabetical and not chronological order. As I have been trying to complete all of the Hertfordshire ones I have put Herts by those ones to keep track.
