As we were staying with my Aunt in Dorking, Stuart and I decided to do a bit of parkrun tourism. My mum was also with us. She had packed her shoes and barcode, so she was also ready to take part. We had a quick look at the parkrun map and decided to visit Reigate Priory parkrun as that was the nearest event.
We parked in a nearby supermarket. I was a bit worried that we were going to be late as the car park was very busy and it wasn’t easy for us to find a space. We then had to find our way to the start. Fortunately, it was immediately next to the car park, so we were able to get there in time.
On the walk to the start, we were able to admire the beautiful park and buildings. I was also impressed by the children’s play area.
Reigate Priory parkrun is all on grass. It has quite a wide start, but quickly the runners form a fairly narrow line. I had decided to run with my mum, so we started near the back.
It is a two loop course, so after Stuart had finished, he came back to cheer us on on our second lap.
We finished in a slow time, but it’s a fairly tough course.
