The continuing adventures of the Travelling Barcode…

A couple of weeks ago we told the story of the travelling barcode, which had been accidentally dropped in Fælledparken and was being returned to its rightful owner via a roundabout parkrun-related route.


Well, we have a latest update from the journey that the barcode has made on the past two Saturdays. First it found itself at the spiritual home of parkrun, Bushy parkrun, London where it was handed over to Matthew Bonnell from Exeter parkrun in the UK.

But Matthew had other plans than to take the barcode back to Exeter as he was indulging in a spot of parkrun tourism that weekend and so instead the barcode was taken to Guernsey parkrun in the channel islands between the UK and France. Guernsey parkrun has been open for a couple of years and takes place in a stunning coastal setting. Here are a couple of images from the event.






Here there was another unexpected twist! This time the travelling barcode is on a real adventure, as it was handed over to J Neethling who is from Cape Town, South Africa. His home parkrun is Rondebosch Common parkrun, shown below, which looks pretty special!



As the travelling barcode’s owner, Brendon Smith-Westergaard commented “My barcode is certainly getting to see a few more parkruns than it would have done staying with its owner!”

We hope that it will be back home soon! A final instalment awaits……

From Denmark to Dresden, with parkrun love!

Since 2011, my mother (Who now has 250+ runs) tried to persuade me to run parkrun with her, she knew I enjoyed running. Sadly I was working every Saturday morning, and was therefore unable to participate. However in 2014 I changed jobs and was able to try it out.     Obviously I loved it……
