#21 – Tourists all the way from Canada!


This week saw a parkrun tourist from Canada join us – surely the furthest traveller we’ve had here at the Leas – along with other most welcome tourists from Manchester and Croydon!

Along with these visitors, we welcomed almost one hundred runners, including 22 first timers, for another chilly, but dry event with almost half of participants getting PBs!! Well done!

Just a reminder that we want our event to be the most positive, inclusive and welcoming it can be and we want to run and walk with the support of our local community.

As we always say in our pre-event briefing, we do not have exclusive rights along the leas during our event, so please be mindful and courteous when encountering other beach goers along the route, perhaps even say ‘good morning’ if you race pace allows!

We share our beautiful beach with all who use the space and we think there is room enough for everyone to enjoy it on a Saturday morning.

See you next week!
