    Curious how hilly your local parkrun is compared to others?

    Last night the Watergrove parkrun Facebook page shared this website that ranks parkruns by their elevation from flattest #1 Southsea to hilliest #458 Lanhydrock.

    So far I've run #300 Heaton Park, #391 Bolton and #451 Watergrove.

    On the hillier side of parkruns, wonder what time I'd achieve on a flatter course.

    The one I run is #249 Birkenhead, so I'm in the middle! ^_^

    Unfortunately ours are flat, but I am surprise that Harcourt Hill is at 197, but no surprise that Abingdon is at 35.

    That website is amazing!! My first was Roundhay in Leeds which is 418 because it's hilly. My local one, which I'm going to for the first time on Saturday, is Swindon and that's 267!

    I'm halfway between my two local park runs but have run number 9 on the list a few times since moving here. Whilst elevation isn't an problem you either get a headwind on the way out of the way back to slow you down.

    Also ran #84, #126, #112, #230 and #283
