“Walk with Bronwyn” – Brooklands parkrun

27 May 2023 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

Hi Everyone,

Join us for a parkrun meet-up and picnic at Brooklands in Surrey this Saturday to meet all your friends in the region and walk with Bronwyn Broccoli.

• Who’s Bronwyn (They/them)? They are our unofficial South East England region mascot and have been “running” with several of our members over the past few months. You can follow their journey on Strava and maybe even be one of their “pairs of shoes” yourself 😊

• Why are we walking? Bronwyn loves to be surrounded by vegans (despite most of them liking to eat broccoli), most of us love to be surrounded by vegans, so if we all walk together then we’ll have opportunities to chat and enjoy each other’s company even more. And while some park runners might miss a few of us spread out in the event – they can’t miss a big group of us as they come around on the second lap 😃

• What about my stats? Ok, so we know some of you love to go for a PB every week -and Brooklands is very flat! – so why not go ahead and get your token, then come back and join us for a cool down (just don’t go through the funnel twice).

• What about this picnic? What better way to continue the conversations than over a picnic blanket with your new and old friends. Bring enough food and drink for yourself, or if you feel ambitious make something to share too. One of Brookland’s RDs is even making some vegan cupcakes to welcome us. There is a picnic area behind the coffee van and lovely weather has been ordered 😉

• How do I get to Brooklands? By train – Weybridge, Byfleet & New Haw, and West Byfleet stations are all close by with access from London, by road we’re not far from M25 junction 10 – just an hour’s drive from most places in the region and London – ask in your local WhatsApp groups about car sharing or offering to drive others or get in touch with me and I’ll try to help.

• When is the group photo? Great question, we will aim to take a photo with Bronwyn, banners and all you wonderful VRs at 8:50am, but as always we’ll have some late arrivals and will take another photo after our mass finish (and several in between).

Let us know you’re coming by joining the Strava club event is

Look forward to seeing you,

Darren and Bronwyn 🥦
