Leakin Park Parkrun

Saturday, Nov 30, 2019 at 9:00am

Winan’s Meadow
North Franklintown Road
Baltimore, MD 21229

It is a 5km run - it's you against the clock.

We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

The Course:

The course is 5000m (5K) long. The course is at Winan’s Meadow, West Baltimore. The course is run on a mixture of paved paths and trail paths. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.

Please remember that the parkrun uses shared paths. For the continued success of the event, please give way to other park users. This won't hurt your time, it won't stop you from getting a PB and it will make sure everyone continues to enjoy the event.

Please, wherever possible walk, jog, cycle or use public transport when attending the event. If you do have to drive, please consider car-sharing to reduce our impact on both the environment and other park users. Please also watch out for other park users when arriving and leaving. Parking may be limited so try to arrive early.

Course Description:

This is a double out and back course. The course is all on paved road or path. The start is on the concrete bridge to left of parking lot near the pavilion. Runners keep left and follow path, with river on left, to end over a long wooden bridge. Turn left up the road until you hit the turnaround after approx 425m to the top of the ridge. Turn around at the marshal point. Follow the course back over the wooden bridge keeping the river on your right. Follow the path to return to the starting area for a loop around the start cones and return out on the 2nd lap. At the end of the second lap continue to the bridge by the pavilion into the finish funnel.

Age Grading:

All parkrun events use Age Grading to help athletes compare results.

Age Grading takes your time and uses the world record time for your sex and age group to produce a score (a percentage). This score allows you to compare your personal performance against other people's performances even though they might be a different age and a different sex to you - the higher the score the better the performance. The scores can also be compared across different race distances - to allow you to, for example, compare a 5km time against a marathon.

Post Run Coffee:

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in a local café - please come and join us!
