This saturday, I went and did a 5K practice run with my wife Trine. It was the first for a while. The people behind the “race” are parkrun.com.
It is free, all you need to do is to go to their website to register.
Once registered you get a barcode to print and you are ready to go. Once you get to the Park Run, the procedure is as follows:
- Bring your bar code to the Park Run (on your phone or printed)
- Run the 5K
- At the finish line you receive a bar code (hold on to it, this is your goal time)
- Once you have cooled down a little, find the official that can scan your member bar code and your goal time bar code.
- That’s it, now you will see your run and the time on parkrun.com site.
