“A busy but well-organised parkrun around a very pretty park with just one hill that you visit four times!”
A bit of tourism this week to Wardown Park in Luton, with the lovely Sophie and Jan, flying the purple flag for Dacorum & Tring AC.
Luton Wardown is a busy but well-organised parkrun around a very pretty park with just one hill that you visit four times! The course is a three and a bit lap route, mainly on tarmac with a short grass/mud uphill section. It would be a great course for a buggy run and with its gentle uphill very suitable for children too.
Numbers are generally in the 200-300s and there is enough space to overtake on the route apart from when going across the bridge. The briefing took place about 200m away from the start by the lake with a novel baggage trolley that is taken to the finish by a volunteer for collecting at the end.
Facilities wise: free but limited parking with parking on the streets nearby too; toilets 800m from start; cafe at the Luton Town and Indians Cricket Club afterwards.
PB – 28:20
Best Position – 137th
Times run – 1
