**POSTPONED** Reigate Parkrun & Brunch

17 December 2022 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Unfortunately Reigate parkrun has been cancelled due to weather conditions. 😢

Therefore Reigate parkrun and Brunch will be rescheduled for February when hopefully there won’t be a train strike or poor weather conditions. 🤞🏻

Stay safe everyone on your local parkruns if you venture out.

NB, January will have a parkrun meetup in Worthing, details to come.

Regards,
Darren

Beautiful parkrun and wide selection of vegan brunch options, last big meet-up of the year!

December already and this will be the last “region wide” meet-up of the year. This should prove a nice opportunity to meet friends from further afield before Christmas kicks in fully. Afterwards I propose brunch at the Corzo Lounge on Reigate Highstreet just ½ a mile away. While not a vegan establishment, they do have extensive offerings on their vegan menu (group booking required, see below for details).

Reigate Priory parkrun is held in Priory Park very close to Reigate town centre and is two scenic laps, a mixture of footpath and grass.

Vegan Runners currently had 25 parkrunners at Reigate Priory, another 25 will place us in the top 9 clubs by parkrunners. Fastest male time is held by Mark Revell-Wright in 20:55, female time is held by Lin Lascelles in 22:41, and by age grade Lin and Martin Lascelles both hold top spots with 78.77% and 77.29% respectively. Alma Botes is our local expert having completed a very impressive 113 events (out of her 319 total parkruns)!

Photos

If people could plan to arrive around 08:30, there’s always lots of general chat and hi’s. Will aim for a group photo at 08:45 before the parkrun briefing starts.
Anyone who’s not running, walking, or otherwise volunteering – I encourage you to come along and take lots of pics of our runners and share with me after.

Getting there – be green, walk, ride, use public transport, or car share where possible
