LonDone: Completing all Greater London parkruns
After 5 years of early Saturday morning drives to obscure parts of the capital, I've now completed all 52 Greater London parkruns. It started with Wormwood Scrubs, an early tourist trip and a nice change from my home location, Black Park. This soon evolved into my annual Winter Tour, bagging about 10 new ones a year. By late 2016 it had become a mission to tick them all off and get my first Regionnaire status.
I thought I'd get it done by New Year 2018, but that was thwarted by a few changes of plan, some winter cancellations and the addition of 4 new runs. Finally, I ticked off Hoblingwell, Victoria Docks, Clapham Common and Catford to complete the list on June 2nd 2018. Victory at last ... until the next new one is announced.
