Good vegan turnouts for parkruns at Brighton and Cassiobury last weekend (though it sounds like the Brighton mob got told off for eating their picnic in the cafe – very naughty 😉
A few of us will be meeting up at Tring parkrun this coming Saturday 🙂
Kim Wright on the recently established Cassiobury parkrun where at least 7 VRUK members ran with Rafal and Darren under 20 minutes and a sub-25 PB for Hortencia:
‘Great VR turn out at Cassiobury Parkrun this morning. It was lovely to see you all. Hortencia well done on another great time (I think it was a PB). We had nearly as many runners as Watford Running Sisters I think with Rafal, Attila, Sebastian, Anna, Georgie and Darren and their two delightful daughters.’
Dave Arnold reports back on Brighton:
‘Today’s BRIGHTON VEGAN RUNNERS POST-PARKRUN MEET-UP.
About 10 of us, with mixed fortunes; Young Astrid taking a tumble early on, cutting arm and DNF’ing whilst at the other end of the scale mum Paula bashed out yet another PB (20:43) .
However the day was probably more notable for the ‘telling-off’ we got from the cafe owner for taking our own food along …we’ve done this now for months, and in fairness to the cafe, due to our perseverance, they now stock both soya and almond milk AND new from today gluten-free vegan chocolate cake!!
We also gave out many leaflets for the forthcoming Vegfest in Brighton and encouragingly many people either already had a leaflet, or even a ticket!…..have you got yours yet????
Sorry about the picture quality …just about captures the debris as we rapidly vacated cafe in disgrace…LOL!
Remember next months Meet-up moves to Preston Park because it’s Brighton marathon weekend (eeeeks oh heck!!) and there are mini-mile races there that morning after Parkrun. Astrid made the podium last year ….no pressure there then!!! Can’t find wink icon’ 😉
