After doing all my parkrun at the same venue I decided it was time to venture out and be a tourist for a change. After looking for a parkrun venue close to our accommodation I found mallards pike. What a great location deep in the Forest of Dean. A very friendly and helpful race director who welcomed us all. A nice touch of a board to write where all the parkrun tourists have come from. The run itself was great gently uphill for a couple of kilometres then generally downhill to finish. Very friendly runners not over busy. Lovely cafe at finish line. A lovely sunny morning throughly enjoyed my experience. Hope this helps other future runners.
