Rising Brook Runner Tourists at Cannock Chase Parkrun 03.08.2019 by Mandy
Today is my 19th Parkrun and we are off to Cannock Chase.
I don’t think I will be too fast today, but it never matters about your pace!
You can run or sprint or jog or hop or take your dog for a walk;
It’s a fabulous course for a solo goal or a great place to meet friends and talk.
I toured with Ali and Chelle and with Lynne from Baswich Run4Fun –
Her group’s graduated from couch to 5k and are ready for their first Parkrun
The excitement is building amongst the crowd and we all make our way to the start
The warm up is great with Run4Fun coach Mark who encouraged us all to take part.
It’s a wonderfully warm summer morning for a Parkrun over the Chase
And the beautiful forest surround makes it an extra special place
There are 389 runners today and I am so proud to be one of them
Why not come along next week? – Tourists and locals all welcome.
Well done to all participants including a 100th milestone run for Steve
You, too, could reach some of the milestones just get up and go and believe!
The 33 bundles of joy at Cannock Chase added to the great atmosphere
Especially the man at the bottom of the hill chanting ‘its all downhill from here!!!’
Thanks for all of the support today, I was steady and didn’t go hell for leather –
But that is what Parkrun is about for me – I am in it to #RunTogether.
Thank you Cannock Chase. Parkrun caters to runners and walkers (and buggies), young and old and dogs on short leads too. Come along and see what it is all about. It could change your life! What will you be in it for?
