New Year, New park, Same parkrun family

Good morning Homewood parkrun family. As we look ahead to the New Year, many of us start to think of what we would do differently, what we might try to improve and what we might want to do less of. I heard on the radio this week that the no'1 New Year's resolution world wide is lose weight, what I shame I thought, when we all have so much to gain over the coming year, and starting on a negative seems such a downward spiral.

To that end, we have good news for you, by the end of 2016 we will have had 12 events at Homewood parkrun and each one of those has been special in their own way, from our inaugural to the one where we got soaked all the way through to New Years Eve, but the dawning of 2017 brings us a fresh start.

From 7th January Homewood parkrun will be changing location, we are moving to Ottershaw Memorial Fields just around the corner, where we will be able to benefit from:

- more free parking

- a proper fun trail-y off road route (no trainer dilemmas),

- a visiting coffee cart, no Co2 emissions to get to a hot beverage

- a shiny new defibrillator (largely funded by Homewood Parks Botley's mansion as a leaving gift)

- full park facilities, toilets, play facilities (fully tested by Homewood Core Team!)

We will still be at Homewood for the last two events of 2016, and look forward to seeing you at Ottershaw Memorial Fields on January 7th. Full course information will be added to the website in due course and updates will be posted on facebook and twitter.

Same Homewood parkrun family, same parkrun ethos, just a new park.

Peace, love & parkrun to all.....
