    Cool parkrun Clermont Waterfront

    For those of you unfamiliar with parkrun, it's a FREE 5k run (not a race) hugely popular in the UK, with many events overseas. There are no performance requirements, you just need to be able to run or walk 5k at your own pace. Above all, it's fun and friendly. All you have to do is register, and print a barcode which you must bring to record your time.

    UK events normally start at 9am Saturday, with a few specials on public holidays - my son did 9am plus 10am runs on New Years Day!

    The Clermont Waterfront parkrun starts at 7:30am...and I think 7am in summer. It's 30 - 35 miles from the Disney area...less if you're staying near Highway 27. Allow 1 hour to drive and locate. Always check the website before travelling, there are periodic cancellations.

    The course is fast and flat on a lakeside tarmac path with no gravel. I ran it in December, back again September.

    1180 views and no replies! Any other runners here?!

    I plan to run at Clermont on 29th April. If you join me, look me up on the signup sheet with home run Gunpowder...grey hair, sunglasses, topless as per local custom , NB Zante shoes, sockless. I will drive along 192 and 27 if anyone would like a lift.
    Don't forget your barcode.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    We go up there quite often and cycle that route and the views over the lake are great.

    We are not runners but our youngest has run several park runs in Sheffield before he moved. They ar a great way of getting out and meeting people. Where he mainly ran there were some who were obviously serious runners right down to those who have not done anything for years.
