We did one in Perth, WA, several years ago. Was good fun. Simple concept. Easy to administer. You’re right - nice to see it make it over here. There it is every Saturday morning at several locations around city. Is that the set up there?
Yes, every Saturday, same time and place. There’s just one in Boston so far, at Jamaica Pond. It’s moving temporarily to the Arboretum starting next week while they do some construction, which puts it a little beyond warmup range for me. And is not so flat. :-) They seem like a nice way to get people running regularly.
I have a friend in Perth, WA, who does those parkruns. I checked them out here and found the closest was in central NJ. :-(
We have one a few miles away and I ran it once. Nice option to have.
Now I’m on their email list and I’m always getting the requests for volunteers. (I guess if I do it more often I’ll help out.)
