“This parkrun never stops being challenging, with continual hills and especially tough terrain when wet!”
Gadebridge is my one of my favourite and most attended parkrun courses.
The course is a 2 lap figure-of-eight, mainly on grass but with a few paved sections including an underpass. It’s not the fastest but this parkrun never stops being challenging, with continual hills and especially tough terrain when wet! I have seen a few buggy runners, but you’d have to be brave to do it on this undulating, uneven surface.
Numbers are generally in the low 100s and there is enough space to overtake on the route apart from when going through the underpass. It’s a well supported and marshalled parkrun by two local athletic clubs and they make a good fuss about tourists and milestones.
Facilities wise: free and plentiful parking; toilets 100m from start; large playpark for children by the start/finish; and cafe ‘Elbows Off The Table’ 400m away for afterwards.
