'It's about the joggers who go round and round and round...' This week's challenge was simply Parklife!

With at least 23 public open spaces listed in Southwark such as parks, gardens, fields, commons, woodland and cemeteries, the challenge was to run to, or around our local parks and lesser known green spaces.

4 runners plotted their running routes and shared collage photos of all the green spaces they ran through. Girija topped the list by ticking off a whopping 25 parks!!

Together we visited some famously named places, St James' Courtyard, King George's Field, Dr Harold Moody Park & Tommy's Park. As well as some interestly descriptive parks, One Tree Hill & Bird in Bush!

Over in Norwich, Ian managed to find green spaces with a London theme, including Clapham Wood, West End Gardens & Waterloo Park. As well as meadows, fields, gardens & greens!

Well run everyone! Here's to our next Challenge Sudoku Running.
