Finally a total of 124 runners took part at East Brighton parkrun event #19 near Whitehawk. The times were wrong, we were 1:20 faster than that! I ran with Sally and she ran 80% walked the rest, no stopping! It's on grass and a bit hilly with 3 laps of ever-decreasing circles! This, and Bevendean about 2 miles north are far less crowded than the other 3 Brighton and Hove parkruns.
