The Department of Communities and Local Government has issued a consultation document about ParkRun and suggesting that all municipal parks will not be allowed to charge it or other bodies for organised use of parks for leisure pursuits.
The April 2017 issue 331 of Stragmag is now published.
The Stragglers Road series for 2017 kicked off in fine style at the Ranelagh Half Marathon Sunday 30th April. The race also doubled as the Stragglers inaugural half-marathon championships as well as the Surrey County Championships.
Please note that the Junior Handicap on 8th June will now be at Ranelagh and on 22nd June at the Hawker Centre
A few people have had to drop out due to injury, and we can transfer numbers.
Congratulations to all 23 Stragglers who ran in the London Marathon, and the 7 junior Stragglers who competed in the Mini-Marathon.
Good luck at all the Strags running on Sunday
