Last Parkrun for 3 months.January 5 in France ⋅ ⛅ 37 °F
The reason for stopping here was to do one of only 5 or 6 Parkruns in France.
After a very cold night -4, we stayed in the warm van for as long as possible, then at 8.50 emerged expecting the usual crowds at the start. There were only 10 others!
So after shaking hands with everyone we did 3 laps of a nice level park. They asked you to time yourselves as they did not have all the right equipment.
At the end we all shared hot coffee and tea and a lovely sweet French tarte.
As Wendy and I both still had colds and Wendy a headache as well we were a bit slower than normal.
They were very proud to tell us their Parkrun had been going 3 years and that it was the first in France.
There are no Parkruns in Spain so we may do this one again on the way back in 3 months time.
It was probably the smallest, coldest but friendliest one we will ever do!
After a hot shower and porridge it was back on the road for a free night near the village of Labouheyre.Read more
