5k Parkrun - can anyone confirm?
I see that Reading is named on the parkrun website (http://www.parkrun.com/, though the link gives no information except that one is planned for August 1st.
Does anyone have any information about location, or confirmation that this is going to happen?
'Parkruns' are weekly timed 5Ks, and would be a good inducement to me to get running again, and to keep going through the summer.
Or if you are to the East, there is Black Park north east of Slough.
I'd be interested in hearing more about Reading
Thanks. I'm aware of the Basingstoke parkrun, but it's a 20 mile drive which I don't fancy for a 5K. If the Reading one was, say, Prospect Park, it would be only 3 miles or so, which I would happily walk/jog/bike to.

Oh I see the problem - in the meantime you should come over to Basingstoke - NHTT
Just keep checking the page for more details I suppose.
I'm sure the Basingstoke event is superb, but it's too far for a 5k run. I'll hang on for the Reading one on August 1st, wherever it turns up!
it's been put back to September 5th
I am kind of hoping it will be at Palmer Park as that is nearer to where I live, also a lap of Palmer is 1 mile. although Prospect is a bit bigger.
didn't microsoft use to organise a 'not quite 5k' event around TVP?
there's some nice paths round there for sure, hopefully the blokes with model aircraft won't be divebombing us like they usually do.
TVP is a 10 minute jog away so it works rather nicely as a warm up
