Dave Arnold reports back on an excellent vegan turnout at Brighton parkrun:
“BRIGHTON Parkrun Meet-up Sat 14th June 2014.
Perhaps our largest turn out for ‘2nd parkrun of the Month’ meet up. Nine of us, 8 running…and one (Simeone) managing /announcing today’s race, which meant that Vegan Runners Club were given an extra-special mention at start line assembly.
There were PB’s today from Paula (21:37) and Gordon (20:37), in what were very warm conditions. Sadly the cafe still hasn’t got the idea about vegan food….so we took our own!!!! Newcomers today were Gordon and Jason, and we look forward to seeing even more at future events. We would have had another runner today too but Maria was a mile away, helping marshal Brighton’s other Parkrun, at Preston Park.”
As well as targeting Brighton park every second Saturday of the month Paula Blackledge has supplied a list of some upcoming events in the area you are likely to meet other vegan runners at:

You can find Paula, Chris and Dave’s contact details on the membership list (or we can pass on a message).
