Report from last event – Saturday 1st February at Roxbourne Park
Well done to the 46 runners who took part in this event. This was a new route to avoid the mud and swamps that our normal route has turned into. Most feedback was positive (nothing like dry feet to encourage people). There were various reports of the distance, however Strava came in at 4.99km. Two runners found a hitherto unknown shortcut in the nature reserve; we’ll put additional signs there next time in case anyone else finds this. We’ll also get out with the measuring wheel when the weather improves and measure this course accurately.
This month’s volunteers were Barbara, Peter J, Gill, Pippa, Nathan, Mitesh, Ruth, Diane, Ian, Marilyn, Kath and Steve.
The next 5k event at Roxbourne is on Saturday 2nd May – there may be cake

Eligibility: Must be a member of Metros and registered with parkrun. Participants are strongly encouraged to wear official Metros kit at all events.
Scoring: Scores will be calculated on an age-graded basis as follows: the runner with the highest age grading in an event is awarded 50 points, 2nd highest 49 points, etc.. Final positions will be determined by highest cumulative score over the year with only your top 10 results counting.
