The FASTEST and SLOWEST parkrun in Wales


I'll start this blog with reiterating what I said in my other post The Best parkrun in South Wales, all parkruns are awesome, and the fact that a parkrun is fast doesn't make it the best, and similarly a slow parkrun isn't a bad thing, there is lots more to it and personal preference to take into account.


In this blog I've taken the Standard Scratch Score (SSS) from here, if you want to know how the SSS is calculated, its explains in this video here. The lower the number the faster the course.

The first list orders the Welsh parkruns in order of fastest to slowest. Following this is version in alphabetical order so you can find your local one quickly, you can skip straight that here.
