It's only a couple of weeks since I've learned about the concept of the parkruns and I really liked it! To a beginner like myself sounds like the fun middle ground between running alone and entering a race. The distance looks ideal as well! But is it really so?? I ve been reading a number of threads (both here and in fetcheveryone) and they look dominated by the same old people, quite serious about running, quite interested about other people's perfomances (especially bad ones), too much me-myself-and-I-talk (that I dread), too much three-years-54800threads-120eventsentry-beginners.. Not my cup of tea whatsoever!!! So, I was wondering.. Are they really open, beginner friendly events, or just another group of "village"-gossip, clique-centered and match-making-in-disguise ones???
I would much appreciate any feedback from real beginners, and especially about the Cambridge and/or Milton Keynes events (since I am right in the middle and I can choose both ways)..
Thanks a lot!
