We don't have one. I contacted park run a while ago and they were thinking of starting one in Padarn country park in llanberis. Just wondering if anyone's involved in it or any other north (west) Wales park run?

"if I could take my London wages" may be where you're falling down.

I'm not complaining in any way, we love it here and chose to live here - the only real downside is we are a king way from family (Scotland). There's loads of bike paths along the coast to run along - the hills would be too much for me

I just fancied the idea of running with other peoe occasionally and I can't get to any of the local running clubs due to a combination of work/ children/ children's activities/ husband's work and the fact that they are all on weekday evenings. A Saturday/ Sunday morning, however, I could manage now and again and if we could take the kids along we could both manage it fairly regularly.

'a long way', not 'a king way'

Hi Shona, I'd be interested.

My nearest one is on the Wirral - 40+ miles away.

I'll have to dig back through my emails and check Seren.

Where are you K80? I think we're about 60miles from the Wirral, so you must be further east.

Wheres the one of the Wirral, K80?

I hadn't heard of one on the Wirral either

There's one in Liverpool - princes park. More or less the Wirral isn't it?

Don't ask me - I'm forever getting lost on my long run. Are Liverpool and Wirral different places then?

Shona, I'm up in the hills of Denbighshire where the local currency is anything shiny

I ran the Delamere course yesterday and videoed it (quality is quite poor). The route is as I ran it before Christmas with the organiser.  I don't know if this is the confirmed route, the map on the parkrun website is slightly different. I can't see it starting in the car park as there is a bottleneck and bollards and then at the far side of the mere it takes you on to the road which is not necessary.
EDIT: route description does say it starts next to car park.   it also mentions "a nasty (but very short) little hill." which I wouln't call a hill, it's more of a incline and it's not really nasty. (18:15 on vid)

I agree with Dave - The Ex Spartan; geography knowledge is poor in the UK.  For your information Delamere is in Cheshire.
