I'm not angry at all, is that what you say to anyone with a different point of view? Very similar to VD, uncanny.
I use the local gym at ??4 a time. It's a bit old and scruffy, and not many people go, but it does the job. Should I start a petition to persuade Bannatynes to let me use their gym free? Park run only exists because of the goodwill of a hell of a lot of people not even remotely connected to the running community, I think it's a privilege to be able to run in some of the venues not an entitlement.

Yes Peter but money flows in from sponsors presumably based on the number of people participating and its directors are paid and it employs staff. If you are a parish councillor volunteering in your spare time that is hard to accept. I'm certainly not going to try to defend the financial behaviour of the national trust, but I'll defend its right to refuse another commercial organisation the free use of its facilities if it wants to.

You haven't made clear what is wrong with the venue that you've been offered though. Why do you demand that you run on the NT property? Is it some sort of political chip on your shoulder? If I don't like a local park run venue, I don't go to the nearest beauty spot and spit my dummy out if they don't give me carte Blanche to tear it up with a couple of hundred other runners
nobody put park run in charge of the NT property in enniskillen, and like the guys in little stoke perhaps this particular manager sees a disconnect between the commercial organisation that is park run wanting free use of the facilities that he is paid to look after. The council, who probably have more of an interest in the undoubted benefits that park run brings to its runners and venues, has given you a venue, so like I asked before just what is the problem?

You do hate to be disagreed with don't you...NT have said thanks, but no thanks, and the parkrunners of Enniskillen have been offered a free alternative venue by their local council. so what, exactly, is the issue? You have your run, it is free, but that's not enough - you want your free run on someone else's property maintained at the expense of visitors who have to pay to go there.

I See. So it's the OP that wants to get into the beautiful venue without paying towards its upkeep. My apologies to park run.

I wish Park run would stop trying to bully legitimate trustees of land into letting them have it free of charge without contributing a penny of the income they derive from their global sponsors to its upkeep.
