Inaugural runs: Mile End parkrun (4 February 2012)

Another brand new parkrun today, this time in Mile End. It starts at the south end of Mile End park, and is twice around a lollipop. The design of the course gives you plenty of opportunity to see the other runners, to shout encouragement at your friends and to monitor the progress of your rivals. It's all tarmac, undulating and kicked off with a (male) course record of 15:23.

It is also situated right next to Regent's Canal, making it a perfect venue if you fancy extending your parkrun into a long run. I know this because I was meeting a couple of virtual running buddies and was in charge of finding a route. South along Regent's Canal, West along the Thames Path and then North into Hyde Park. Job done.
