For 2024 we're introducing a competition for RPAC parkrun tourism cribbed from Horley Harriers (thank you HH!).

The current standings for our competition can be downloaded in Excel workbook form here.

For each of the above parkrun tourism events each participant will be awarded points from the following...

Activity Pts
Completing a parkrun 1
First timer completing at the venue 2
First ever parkrun 3
Course PB 3
1st RPAC man, woman, junior (u16) 4
Overall parkrun PB 5

 

Note that you can only score at the above parkrun venues on the specified dates. You can only score once per fixture with your highest achievement, so for instance if you complete the parkrun, you're a first timer at the event and it's your first ever parkrun, you'd score 3 points total at that fixture for it being your first ever parkrun.

There will be a mens and a ladies league.

If the results end in a draw of points based on the above scoring, the winner will be decided on the individual who had the biggest PB amount from the start to the end of the tour.

We will post the results here after each parkrun.

Adrian Grant's notes on our venues...

Banstead Woods parkrun has its main public car park at the junction of Holly Lane and Park Lane.  On parkrun days it fills up quickly.  Likely to be full by 8.30am so we need to arrive early.  THERE ARE NO TOILETS!  Although there are plenty of trees!
 
Brighton and Hove parkrun is in Hove Park.  Three laps, one short lap and two long laps.  (Sounds a typical RPAC training session!).  Very popular.  Averaging 400+ attendance for this year. Have not done it so no knowledge of post parkrun activities.  Their website states plenty of off street parking around the park.
 
Kingdom parkrun is one of the prettiest that we have done.  In Penhurst, Kent (near Tonbridge).  There are toilets and a cafe on site.  Three laps of an undulating but scenic course.  Although only averaging about 120 runners per event this year the carpark is small.  Again suggest people arrive early.  Say by 8.30am.
 
Lancing Beach Green parkrun is on the seafront and is very near Worthing parkrun that we know so well.  Parking is available in the surrounding streets.  Plus there is a pay carpark right at the start.  I cannot recall if there is a height barrier on this carpark.  The first 1km is on grass then the rest on out and back on the concrete coastal path.  Toilets available.  A very good beach cafe (The Perch) is at the parkrun start / finish.
 
Seaford parkrun is one I have yet to do.  It is a fast out and back course.  It has been known to cancel in stormy weather due to stones being thrown onto the concrete coastal path.
