583 - Hallam

A clever statto at UK parkrun tourists has worked out that 70 runners from Graves followed PSH to Poolsbrook, did a double with him, and helped set a new attendance record by 94 as well!

Odd question - Anyone know anywhere round here with a series of cobbles?

I am doing an event which has significant sections of cobblestone roads and I want to "acclimatise"

Ideally, I would want a section of cobbles or road/pavement surface that is similar that I could build a lap around.

Strange question I know but any ideas?

Very sketchy details on their website. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about the 12k route that goes on the rougher terrain paths around the park.
Just noticed that this race is crossed out on Steel City Striders website calendar. Cancelled?
Although still listed on Rother Valley site - ?

A good news story (I hope) for the new defribs.

Any idea which local Park runs already have them apart from Clumber and Doncaster?

We have access to the defib kept at the watersports centre at Rother Valley Country Park.

We have a radio so we can contact the park rangers in the event of an emergency and the AED (defib) can be taken to the party concerned.

Sorry to mislead you.
Only Junior parkrun's are on sundays at 9am over a 2k distance.

Organised woodland/park Night runs seem to be appearing all over. Like those on National trust properties. They seem to be lots of fun with a string of cycle headlights bobbing along in front and behind you.

I'm not sure of your level but there are numerous starter/improver groups like 'Couch to 5k' that generally do their sessions on weekday evening's. I will root out some contact details and re-post with detail soon.

Anyone with more info please post here

I'm a bit beyond the couch to 5k as I'm training for the sheff half marathon, but just wanted to take a friend to parkrun for the atmosphere. We shall have to wait until kids trampolining has ended!

Jessica Ennis-Hill's attendance at Hallam to launch the parkrun/Vitality partnership boosted numbers there too.

Happy Soles, (SW Sheffield)

Graves was only one of four cancellations in the whole country but snow over ice is a tricky combination! Hallam gets a mention in the national figures:-

Hi Beth, Park run is an international organisation and (nearly) all of the runs around the the world are on Saturday mornings (with the exception of Christmas day, New Years day additional runs etc). I don't think the time varies much either.

There are however a great number of running clubs in the Sheffield area who organise group runs. It depends on which area you like to run in, but there's sure to be a group running near you. (I would recommend Steel City Striders as it's my club, but I'm sure the others are nearly as good )

Sorry* Beth the 443 UK parkruns run on a formula of 5 simple things that never change.

1. Saturday at 09:00 (9:30 in N.Ireland & Scotland)
2. 5k distance
3. Timed
4. A local cafe for socialisation
5. Free forever.

*It is possible to register, obtain a personal record and then complete 'freedom' runs on any parkrun course. The 'freedom' run can be completed on any day at any time. In truth they will never be the same as the parkrun experience but it will enable you to compare times with the Saturday at 09:00 runners.
