A digestible audio roundup of the goings on of everything that caught our eye from the weekend in parkrunworld.
the parkrun show - The End
It's time to say goodbye with an array of farewells in store. Nicola went to Wetherby parkrun, Danny went to celebrate with Darren Wood at Frimley Lidge as Darren finished his 500th parkrun but amongst all that the show reflects on the past three and a half years, thanks everyone involved and hears from a bunch of familiar voices. All that's left to say is kthxbai.
the parkrun show - On Me 'Ed Son
The penultimate show is here and in it Nicola went to Halifax parkrun's third event, Danny went to the Maidenhead parkrun inaugural (tut tut) plus they talk about crotchitting, poxes and look forward to the big 500 for Darren Wood.
the parkrun show - Shoelace Goblins
In this week's show Nicola double-knots at Roundhay parkrun, Danny gets gifts at Chichester parkrun, Tees Barrage parkrun whisper and they string things out to make Vicky Dick run longer.
the parkrun show - The Short And The Long Of It
In this week's show it's all about the length. Nicola was stuck in a car garage but still managed to parkrun whilst Danny went to the very new Cassiobury parkrun in Watford. They discuss course measurement, volunteering figures and more.
the parkrun show - Sheeps
In this week's show Nicola wishes for another to FTB whilst Danny fulfilled a two year promise of a visit to Wimpole Estate parkrun. They discuss a 250+1 Clubber, make apologies for man-flu mistakes and discuss a course change at the cradle of parkrun.
the parkrun show - Cough
In this week's show Nicola's busy being a social butterfly whilst poorly Danny revisited 'Chilly' Fields parkrun. They congratulate six new 250 Clubbers, one of whom is the youngest ever, announce the 40th Cowell Clubber plus read your Facebook General Interest comments.
Loving listening back to this podcast series, learning about the early years of parkrun which I missed out on at the time.
I recommend fans subscribe to the With Me Now podcast, also by Danny and Nicola, for more parkrun related chatter, love and laughter.
Thanks for the memories
parkrun is one of the simplest and classic ideas of the 21st century.
In time more and more people will begin to find out about it. And in time more and more people will realise what an incredible concept it is and the benefits it can bring.
This light hearted weekly family show, hosted by Danny Norman and Nicola Forwood is a terrific addition to parkrun. It allows for the larger community to discover the latest news and developments wherever they are in the world. Danny and Nicola have provided many excellent event reviews from across the nation (although perhaps one too many from Woodhouse Moor parkrun!). The show provides humour and trivia from across the nations weekly running events to the forefront. They team up well on the show. It is difficult to say why. Perhaps it is because they represent two different groups that attend parkrun? But, in doing, so they agree with the many nuances the free event brings. They are certainly good people, with big hearts and both believe strongly in parkrun. Who knows what the magic is but they do work well together.
Sadly, the podcast will end in its current format this week and will be missed by many. I thank Danny and Nicola for bringing the latest parkrun news to this format but perhaps all good things must come to an end. I am for one just pleased it did exist and I did get to experience it first hand. I also had the pleasure of meeting ‘King Danny’ on show 184 and I was not disappointed. A genuine and extremely kind chap. He is(soon to become was)a key stone to the organisation of parkrun. He will be a credit to anyone who is lucky enough to work with or for him in the future. For the visit and the show I thank Danny and everyone else who has been responsible for bringing this programme into existence. Good luck with everything and fond farewell.

Just listened to my very first parkrun show and was impressed, very professional. Lots of interesting stuff to listen to but best of all it’s a light hearted show with lots of good banter with Nicola and Danny. Will tune it again next week for another exciting episode!
