Parkrun at Worthing in West Sussex on Saturday. Was staying in a village slightly north of the town and below the South Downs. Set off for Worthing in the pouring rain making the temperatures slightly below seasonal. By the time I arrived in Worthing the sun was out and the temperature even so early in the morning was around 22-23C and yes in blazing sunshine. It all felt decidedly Mediterranean with a pleasant promenade out and back course starting and finishing near the Victorian pier. Large field of around 390 augmented by runners from Brighton whose own event had been cancelled due to the Pride festival. Usual great organisation and marshalling so very enjoyable but boy the heat as I say at 9 in the morning – can`t imagine what it must be like taking part in similar events in Southern Europe given the current extreme heat wave there.
