parkrun Challenges

parkrun club t-shirts

I love attending parkrun every week, so I’ve decided to set myself a number of parkrun challenges for the next year. Most of them are teeny tiny goals, but I thought they might add some fun.

  • Wow…love the Parkrun challenges. How do you get a cow cowl??? I’m a bit behind you having done 104 at last count. On a mission to pb and general aim of sub 20 minute 5k. I want a top 3 finish with the dream of a 1st at a Parkrun somewhere. Want to do 20 venues and all the ones in Wales. An international is also a big wish but that will take some planning! Good luck with all your challenges. I took 3 friends last week 😁

  • I’ve been doing my own parkrun challenge this year, going to 17 different events in London (because it’s 2017). It’s been so much fun to visit different places and try the different courses. Love your ideas too!

  • Love a prakrun challenge. Very impressed with how many you have. What do you need to do to get a cow cowl??? I might make that one of my aims but I am a bit behind you (104 parkruns at 10 venues)…my challenges…
    Get a PB…not happened for about 2 years
    Dream of a sub 20…..48 seconds away if I can get a PB
    Get a top 3 finish….obviously will have to find a suitable parkrun
    Get a 1st…..another dream
    Do all the parkruns in Wales….need to start with South Wales tho
    Love the idea of an international one
    Good Luck

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
