Redditch Arrow Valley Leap year parkrun

Today we did our first parkrun at Arrow Valley Park in Redditch with Worcesters cancelled due to the flooding we had to travel to get our very special Leap year parkrun in!

Although the weather was not on our side when we arrived (rain rain and some more rain!) We managed to hide in the visitor centre (and buy some drinks to support them of course!) Until it was time to go.

My husband went off with the runners and we started at the back with the tailwalkers who happily chatted with us while we were waiting to start (thank you ladies!)

The course is all tarmac which was perfect for us with the buggy, although there were some rather large puddles due to all the rainfall it was a lovely course and the rain subsided just as we started (thankfully!) And we enjoyed a lovely 2 laps round the river and finishing in a respectable walking time

Would definitely recommend this course for buggy runners, its great that its all tarmac and mainly flat too – not to mention there is a cafe and toilets in the visitor centre for you and the little ones – we will definitely be back to run here in the Summer
