Thanks, yes, they gave me all the paperwork you mention which I've read (lots of it).
They didn't say anyone else has enquired from the area. I presume they would have put me in touch if so?
It seems like a considerable undertaking (fundraising alone) so I thought I might try to get a small committed group of other volunteers together. Happy to take the lead but it might be more fun/sustainable with a group.
Hi, I've just discovered my nearest park run is Waltham Abbey. Saturday 9am is hard enough without travelling that far methinks.
I've done some research into setting up a new park run in Hertford. I just wondered has anyone tried to do this before (I'm presuming Hartham/River Lea path is the best route venue)? Is anyone interested in any of the following:
a) having a parkrun in Hertford (a non-competitive, timed, officially measured 5k run on Saturdays @9am, bit social, bit fun, bit good for you)
b) helping me marshall/set up every week/other week/once a month?
Agree with all my lovely fellow commenters above. Discover as you go, try stuff, see what works for you. Enjoy. Share.
Have to say one thing I recently found (still trying new stuff after 5 years running), ice baths DO work - even if you're not Paula Radcliffe level! here's me:
Jog to warm up, do run, stop, pat back, stretch, water, chocolate milk, warm bath, wash, empty to 2 inches, fill with cold until quads completely covered. Sit for as long as you can (me, max so far, 10 mins). Get out. Dry. Dress. Eat protein. Pat back. Rest.
This little routine means I now hardly ever get DOMS and even after evil intervals I'm ready to go next day/day after for a tempo or LSR.
