Chelmsford Parkrun Review
This time 4 years ago, when I was in much better shape I ran my third quickest Parkrun time so it was a course I liked.
It had the added bonus that it was also pacer week, so there was someone for me to follow who set the pace.
Chelmsford Parkrun is also very popular course with normally 400+ people taking part, there would be plenty of people to drag me around.
Today was no exception, with 712 people turning up!
To me, I always thought of this course as being flat but it ranks 127th in the Parkrun elevation rankings, which made sense half way round.
You start near the Pavilion in the middle of Central Park.
It was abit carnage at the start as 700+ people try to run the same path. (No where near as bad as Bushy Park when there can be 1500+ people)
You follow a foot path running by the river Chelmer, past the small lake and out to Admirals Park.
The route sees you run along tree lined paths following the river and back to the start.
It is mostly on tarmac footpaths but there is some parts when you run on grass.
Average number of runners per week – 411.3
Biggest attendance – 771
Average run time – 27 minutes and 39 seconds
