Every parkrunner has their own parkrun stories, but not many get round to writing it down to share with the rest of the parkrun community. I would like every parkrunner to have the chance to share their own parkrun thoughts and experiences with the parkrun community by posting on the parkrunfans blog.

Everyone is welcome, whether you are a top athlete, a total beginner or just signed up for your first parkrun. You may want to post on the blog every day, just on Saturdays after your parkrun, or every so often, whenever you want to is fine. You are even welcome just to read what the contributors write. As I say, every parkrunner is welcome on the parkrunfans blog.

If you would like to contribute by writing about your own thoughts and experiences of parkrun then please contact me in one of the following ways:

Twitter: @parkrunfan
Facebook: parkrunfans blog page:

Alternatively add a comment anywhere on the blog against an existing blog post and leave your email address so that I can reply.

I have been writing my own parkrunfan blog for the last year or so and I must say that I find it very rewarding.

If you are unsure about contributing please feel free to contact me by any of the means above. I can assure you that you will not be committing yourself, you can stop at any time and you can contribute as much or as little as you like.
