  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Weald park is my home park run, and I train over there with the running club. I’ve always found it hard going so I don’t do many parkruns. But don’t let this put you off, if you like cross country, trails, woods, grass and hills then this is for you. A lot of people say Thorndon Woods is harder but I found it easier. So its all down to personal preference.
