434 ran at event 359 Preston Park, Brighton, where the Marathon starts. As I can't now run the Marathon, I thought a run on a part of the beginning of the course would have to suffice. It is really 3 laps in a park on tarmac but in a shape of a P. It has 3x180 degree turns and 3 times up a hill for 250 metres which got a bit harder each time.

I was 5th in the Age-Graded (beaten by 4 ladies) times which is always a good sign of a good run. This was my 298th parkrun but I will have to wait a few weeks for my 300th as as many know, I have to have an eye op.

At Lakeside event 231, 236 took part.
