Milan 2 Day Itinerary

We went to Milan for the weekend just to do parkrun. Basically, we found ourselves in Switzerland, as we had transported some equipment our daughter needed for an experiment. But they don’t do parkrun in Switzerland. So on Friday, we jumped into our (her) hired van and drove to Italy.

Day 1

Drive to Milan

After breakfast, we set off for Milan. Today’s drive is a combination of beautiful mountain scenery interspersed with numerous tunnels. In all, we notch up 54 km underground – I feel a bit like a Womble. Half way through the 17 km long Gotthard tunnel, the road signs change from German to Italian and when we finally emerge, we are in the Italian part of Switzerland. We cross the Italian border and are happily driving along, when we spot a not particularly large sign stating that we are in a booth free toll area and have 15 days to pay online.

First stop, on the outskirts (10 miles north east) of Milan is Monza. We stop for supplies in a supermarket. One thing that I often miss when I travel is good cheese. Not a problem I will be having in Italy!

Lunch in Monza Park

We reach the enormous Monza Park and find a nice spot for our picnic lunch. The park is enormous, with 700 hectares of parks, gardens, a villa, sports facilities etc. But I am here for one thing; to visit the iconic race track.

Lunch in Monza Park

Apparently, during the week, the track is open to the public. I have told daughter No 2 that we are taking her hired van for a spin and take a photograph of the van by the track sign to send her. I find this way funnier than she does.

Day at the races?

Autodromo Nazionale Monza

After lunch, we walk through the woods to the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. It takes a while to work out where to go in the huge 113,000 seat complex. Parts of it are closed. But there’s also a lot of action; people with passes, security guards, visitors milling around. I’m all for striding on brazenly until challenged. But the old man is way too square for such behaviour.

Autodromo Nazionale Monza

Eventually, we find our way into a stand on the Ascari Chicane. We watch three cars pass by, then nothing. We wait a while, thinking we’re too late. Then all off a sudden, there’s a crescendo of noise and proper GP style racing cars appear. It’s an unexpected bonus.

During a break, we move to the main stand, opposite the pit lane to watch the next session.

Milano Re Hotel

Then we head to our hote, Milano Re, excited but deaf. At the hotel I attempt, unsuccessfully, to access the motorway toll (Pedemontana) website. It’s not easy; apart from the fact that it’s all in Italian, the validation link doesn’t work and the website is incompatible with my phone, with all the text boxes overlapping each other. Let’s hope I can sort it within 15 days, as the fine for non-payment is €338. I didn’t take any photographs of the hotel, but it was very pleasant and right opposite the park so ideal for getting to parkrun in the morning.

Day 2

Milano Nord Parkrun

Milano Nord parkrun
Milano Nord parkrun

It’s Saturday – AKA parkrun day. Today, we’re going to Milano Nord parkrun in Milan’s Parco Nord. This morning’s run has pros and cons. Pros: (1) it’s a scenic route (2) it’s flat (3) the participants are of diverse ability, so I’m not on my own at the back and have someone to follow. Cons: (1) there are a lot of other park users to avoid (2) my knee hurts (3) I’m not fit (4) it’s bloody hot. I persevere and make it to the finish line. Note, that as mentioned above, it’s a pretty park. Even if you don’t intend to run round it, it’s well worth a visit.

Milano Nord parkrun
Milano Nord parkrun

There was supposed to be water, but the fast runners have drunk it all. So I hobble off to the supermarket dehydrated and grumpy. For breakfast, I buy spoonable Gorgonzola. Cheese you can eat with a spoon! I love Italy. We return to the hotel and I have Gorgonzola and blueberry jam sandwiches. Literally the best breakfast ever. No longer grumpy!

In the afternoon, we take the Metro into Milan. Outside, the temperature is 31 degrees. The train is like a sauna on wheels. The lady opposite keeps wiping the sweat off her face with a tissue. She started the journey with pencilled in eyebrows. By the time we arrive, she looks like Harry Potter’s gran (zig zag mark on her forehead – I thought it was funny!)

Milan Cathedral

We arrive in the main piazza next to the enormous Milan Cathedral with its 135 spires and 3400 statues of pink marble. It’s quite spectacular!

Milan Cathedral
Milan Cathedral

To visit, you need to queue to get a ticket to join the queue to buy a ticket before you can queue to get in. The cathedral is open from 9-7 daily. A ticket for the cathedral costs €7. It’s €10 if you want to climb to the roof terrace via the stairs or €15 to take the elevator. I’ve already done two laps of the park and am too tight to pay €5 to use a lift, so settle for admiring from the ground.

Finally, we make it into the cathedral, which is equally grand with its carved pillars and stained glass.

Back outside, there is a lot of noise in the piazza. We go and investigate – it’s the Milan Rally Show. The competitors and their vehicles are all lined up. Italian Stig appears to be among them.

Museo del Novecento

We continue across the piazza to the Museo del Novecento; a modern art gallery in a stone building with a large glass spiral staircase running through the centre.

The museum is open from 10-7.30 (closed on Monday, open late on Thursday). Entry costs €10.

You work your way up the spiral through the various galleries. The artwork appears to have been ordered from best to worst.

It’s worth persevering though, as there are great views across the piazza to the cathedral from the top.

It’s been a long day, so we decide to head back towards the hotel in search of pizza and beer.

Leaving Milan is complicated. We need €1.90 interurban tickets but accidentally purchase €2.00 intraurban tickets (or maybe the other way round – I’m not sure). Anyway, our tickets don’t work in the turnstiles next to the machine that dispensed them. We are sent to the office to swap tickets. After filling in some paperwork, we must pay €1.70 to change 2 x €2 tickets for 3 x €1.90 tickets. We don’t want three tickets, but the cashier explains that they can’t give refunds and their books must balance, so we must buy a superfluous ticket. There is a full and frank exchange of views. The old man accuses them of robbing tourists. We are asked to leave. We return to our hotel, via a pizzeria. Our weekend in Milan has been interesting but exhausting.

Note: We would have loved to see Da Vinci’s painting of The Last Supper, but tickets sell out well in advance. So, if that is on your wish list, more foresight is required that merely jumping in a van and hoping for the best.

Trip Taken: June 2019

Brockenhurst parkrun

One of the most scenic parkruns we’ve done is Brockenhurst parkrun. During the winter months, the event takes place at Wilverley Inclosure in the New Forest National Park.

New Forest ponies at dawn
New Forest at day break

Orientation

The start/finish are just inside the entrance (Kissing Gate) to the Inclosure adjacent to Wilverley Plain car park, between Burley and Brockenhurst. This is realistically an event you need to drive to as it’s rather remote and 3 miles from the nearest station.

New Forest
New Forest

Facilities

There is a free car park, with a toilet block adjacent to the Inclosure. You’ll probably meet a New Forest pony or two in and around the car park.

Course

The course is pretty much one lap of Wilverley Inclosure, so a nice simple route. All the more opportunity to enjoy the beautiful forest scenery.

Fun Factor

I love this run. From the spectacular dawn drive across the New Forest as the mist hovers above the ground. To the ponies breakfasting on the plain as you arrive at the start. To the run itself in the forested inclosure. It’s definitely one to factor in some extra time taking in the beauty of the forest before finally heading off in search of breakfast…

Note that the Forestry Commission permit does not cover the whole year. In the summer, Brockenhurst parkrun moves to become laps of the somewhat less scenic playing fields at Brockenhurst College. It returns to the forest at the beginning of September.

Upton House parkun

Orientation

Upton House parkrun takes place on the trails of Upton Country Park. The park is on the outskirts of Poole, overlooking Holes Bay. It is 3 miles north-west of Poole, just off the A35/A350 and easily accessible by car. Upton House is a popular parkrun with tourists (particularly those attempting to alphabeteer – run a parkrun beginning with each letter of the alphabet as there aren’t many ‘U’s). The start is a short walk from the car park – just follow the crowd!

I Love Upton Country Park

Facilities

There is plenty of parking at Upton. It’s pay & display; general parking costs £1.50 hour. There is a Weekend Earlybird price of £1 as long as you exit by 10.45 am. Note – this requires pressing a button on the ticket machine when you purchase your ticket – easily missed! There is a large toilet block in the car park and a couple more toilets by the tea rooms near the start.

Upton House Parkrun

Course

The course consists of one large loop, one small loop, then once more round the big loop. The start and finish are in a slightly different place. If you want to leave belongings – I would do so near where the briefing takes place, which is between the two.

Upton House parkrun Strava

Terrain

The run takes place on gravel trails. At times, these trails run though the woods. There is one raised, exposed section where it can be a bit windy, but offers spectacular views across the bay. It’s gently undulating with one short, sharp incline which must be negotiated twice; once right at the finish when you could really do without a hill…

Run Britain Rankings for UK parkruns place Upton House as the 454th fastest out of a total of 706. The course has a total elevation of 41 metres.

Fun Factor

Upton Country park is a very pleasant place for a run, with its wooded trails and views across the bay. It’s very friendly, with a nice mix of regulars and visitors.

Poole parkrun

Orientation

Celebrating its 500th run in 2022, Poole parkrun takes place in Poole Park, on the outskirts of the town (approximately a 10 minute walkf from the train and bus stations. The start on a grass area in the north west corner of the park. There is no vehicular access to the park before 10 am. Limited car parking (mostly pay & display) is available on nearby roads. I find it easier to park in the Dolphin Leisure Centre car park, which is just opposite the park, close to the start.

Poole parkrun

Facilities

There is a toilet block near the start and there are also toilets at the cricket pavilion. The cricket pavilion acts as race HQ, but since Covid, the start/finish lines have been moved away from this area in order to help with spacing people out a bit more.

Christmas Day Poole parkrun

Course

Starting near the lake, the route consists of a lap of the cricket pitch, a lap of the lake and a final lap of the cricket field, before a long straight finish along the cycle path.

Poole parkrun Strava
Poole parkrun Strava

Terrain

Poole is a good place to go if you’re looking for a fast time as it is very flat and mostly paved. There is a short gravel section towards the far end of the lake. The edge of the lake is slightly slanted and can sometimes accumulate bird poo from the resident geese and swans. If’ like me, you’re accident prone, I would advise not running too near the edge!

Poole parkrun

Difficulty

Run Britain Rankings for UK parkruns place Poole as the 49th fastest out of a total of 706. The Course has a total elevation of 8 metres.

Fun Factor

A flat and scenic route through the landscaped park and round the lake. A good route to choose if you’re chasing a 5 km PB or enjoy bird spotting.

Moors Valley parkrun

Orientation

Moors Valley parkrun takes place at Moors Valley Country Park, which is 10 miles north of Bournemouth, on the edge of the New Forest. It is situated just off the A31/A337 and is well signposted. After entering the park, and following the signs to the car park, the start is just in front of you to the right. It’s not really a course that can be easily reached by public transport.

Moors Valley lake
Moors Valley lake

Facilities

There are plenty of toilets near the start at the Visitor Centre. I have to say, they are some of the nicest toilets I have encountered at parkrun. The Visitor Centre also has a cafe for your post run refuelling needs. There is ample parking, but it is not free – you must pay at the paypoint before departure. There is a special price of £1.50 for parkrunners. To qualify for this, you must pay by 10.30 am and depart by 10.45. If you choose to stay longer and enjoy the park’s other facilities (trails, play areas, model railway, golf, Go Ape…), then standard parking charges (approximately £4 an hour) apply. More details can be found here.

Moors Valley parkrun
Moors Valley Totem Pole – parkrun starting point

Course

The course starts by to the totem pole and consists mostly of an anticlockwise loop, with one short out and back section. It is quite narrow at the start, so can take a while to get over the start line. There are signs with estimated start times for you to place yourself behind to help make the start more manageable. (Or to make the slow runners even slower – depending on your point of view). The start is in a slightly different place to the finish, so it’s not a run where you can leave sweatshirts etc at the start beforehand.

Moors Valley parkrun Strava
Moors Valley parkrun Strava

Terrain

The course is mostly on compact gravel trails in the forest, with the last kilometre on a paved path round the lake.

Moors Valley trail

Run Britain Rankings for UK parkruns place Moors Valley as the 176th fastest out of a total of 706. The course has a total elevation of 18 metres.

Moors Valley parkun

Fun Factor

The narrow start is a bit tedious. But once you’re on your way, you run through the forest and then alongside a lake, so it is particularly scenic, which helps to put a smile on your face!

Nonsuch parkrun

A guide to Nonsuch parkrun

Back to where, for me, it all began 9 years ago at Nonsuch parkrun. Nonsuch Park is the grounds of King Henry VIII’s former hunting lodge, Nonsuch Palace. The word ‘Nonsuch’ is said to derive from Henry himself who declared there was nonsuch place like it. The palace is no longer there (the mistress of Charles II had it demolished and sold the materials to pay her gambling debts).

Nonsuch Park
Nonsuch Park

Orientation

Nonsuch Park is in Cheam on the outskirts of South London, in fact the boundary between Greater London and rural Surrey runs along the edge of the park. The park, which borders south Cheam, has free car parking at either end (Ewell Road and London Road). This fills up quickly. So if you are driving, it pays to arrive early. Alternatively, it is a 15 min walk from Cheam Station.

Nonsuch Park in spring

Facilities

The run starts near the Mansion House, which has a cafe and toilets. With an average attendance of around 500, the toilet queue (particularly for ladies) can be rather long…

Nonsuch parkrun
Nonsuch parkrun start (my 100th parkrun)

Course

The course consists of a mixture of tarmac paths and grass. The summer route (Course A) is two laps. In winter, to reduce the amount of running over the grass, a slightly shorter, three lap course (Course B) is used.

Terrain

As already stated, the course consists of a mixture of grass and tarmac paths. Course A is very flat, with one slight incline (total elevation 37 metres). Course B is even flatter (total elevation 7 metres).

Nonsuch parktun

Difficulty

Run Britain Rankings for UK parkruns place Nonsuch as the 70th fastest out of a total of 706. Course A has a total elevation of 20 metres. Course B has an extra hill, so a slightly higher elevation of 24 metres.

Nonsuch parkrun
Nonsuch parkrun finish

Fun Factor

Nonsuch is a large, well established parkrun. It began over a decade ago and regularly hosts over 500 runners, many from local running clubs. It’s very friendly and inclusive. Turn up, and pretty soon someone will be chatting away to you like you’ve known each other for ever!

USA Travel Diary Day 15 – Palo Alto to London

Today is our last day in sunny California and it’s going to be a long one – or is it? Our boarding passes state ‘seats to be allocated at gate’. We shall have to wait until we reach the airport before we find out if we get to spend all night on a plane or are back in Palo Alto in time for tea.

Spring morning in Palo Alto

First up, it’s parkrun day and because of the heat, it starts at 8 am here. Daughter No 2’s flatmate has kindly offered to give us a lift to Byxbee Park in her Tesla. I’ve never been in a Tesla before. It’s basically controlled by a computer screen the same size as my TV! We reach the park and once I’ve worked out how to open the car door, we walk to the start line.

Byxbee parkrun
Byxbee parkrun

Much as I love the exhilaration of participating in UK style mass events, there’s something special about the friendly, community nature of the smaller US races. It’s my third Byxbee parkrun and my second fastest time. With such a small field, I manage to come first in my age group. There’s actually only two runners in my age group, but who’s counting? On the final bend, I overtake a hare – so that officially makes me the tortoise! After the run, someone has provided bagels and strawberry cream cheese, which is a nice reward for our early morning exertion. After chatting to the other runners, we have arranged to meet daughter No 1 and son-in-law (neither of whom could be persuaded to get up at stupid o’clock and run 5 km).

Easter garden display
Easter decorations

We go past a house which daughter No 2 has become obsessed with. The residents are very big on decorating their front garden with seasonal displays. Last time she passed, it was St Patrick’s Day, but now they have gone full on Easter. The trees are filled with hundreds upon hundreds of decorative eggs. It must have taken them hours!

Easter garden display

We go for brunch at Crepevine, where I order an omelette. It’s enormous; the portion size is bordering on obscene – who actually has a stomach that can contain so much food? However, what I manage to eat tastes really good.

We drive back via Stanford’s Rodin Sculpture Garden. We had planned to visit on yesterday’s tour of the campus but we ran out of steam before we reached it.

My angels

We have one final hour left to relax by the pool before we have to depart for the airport. Our two week California has come to an end. We arrive at the airport in plenty of time and son-in-law is worried about getting offloaded. All goes smoothly and once we have completed the formalities and are sitting at the gate, discussion turns to when we should visit again?

Bournemouth parkrun

A guide to Bournemouth parkrun

My home parkrun for the past 5 years is Bournemouth parkrun, which takes place in Kings Park, Boscombe on the outskirts of Bournemouth.

Orientation

Kings Park is 2 miles from central Bournemouth adjacent to the A338, the main road into town. As the park is also the home to AFC Bournemouth, it is well signposted. The start takes place in front of the Athletics stadium. There is some free parking in the park and neighbouring roads, although it can fill up quickly (especially on match days or in peak summer, as the beach park & ride also operates from here).

Bournemouth parkrun start

Facilities

There are toilets located right next to the start, in the athletics stadium. The stadium also has a cafe which is open for post run drinks and snacks.

Celebrations in the cafe at Bournemouth parkrun

Course

The original course (Course A) consists of one small lap plus 2 large laps of Kings Park, starting in front of the Athletics stadium and finishing at the rear of the stadium. The post-Covid course (Course B) consists of a slightly smaller first lap and extended third lap, starting and finishing in front of the stadium.

A slightly different course (Course C) is temporarily being used due to construction work taking place in the park. This consists of the original first lap, plus two shortened long laps, finishing with a mini lap of the field in front of the Athletics Stadium.

Terrain

The course consists of a mixture of grass, tarmac paths, a short section of trail and a short gravel section. It’s mostly flat with a couple of slight hills.

Fun Factor

I love Bournemouth because it’s my home parkrun, but it is bit repetitive and not hugely scenic. Some sections of the course can get muddy in wet weather. Everyone is friendly and plenty of people stay behind after the run for a drink and chat at the cafe. There is often cake…

Byxbee Park parkrun

Byxbee Park parkrun, Palo Alto, California

After many months of no parkrun at all due to Covid, finally international parkrun tourism is possible again. My first post-pandemic overseas event was to join my daughter at her new home parkrun; in Byxbee Park parkrun in Palo Alto, California.

Orientation

Byxbee Park is a waterfront park on the shores of San Francisco Bay. Palo Alto is around 30 miles south of San Francisco, or 20 miles south of San Francisco airport – an easy drive down Route 101. It is a condition of holding the event in the park that parkrunners don’t use the main car park. However, there is plenty of free parking in Embarcadero Road, a short (10 minute walk from the start). A car park marshal is on hand to direct and assist.

Byxbee Park parkrun

Facilities

There are toilets located right next to the start, plus drinking water. There is a cafe for post run drinks and snacks across the road at the Baylands Golf Club.

Byxbee Park parkrun finish
Byxbee Park parkrun finish

Course

The run takes place on The Adobe Creek Trail along the shore of San Francisco Bay. The route consists of two out and back loops. Once the run has started, the entire start/finish line setup is moved back a couple of hundred metres, which is a little disorientating when you return to the start and it’s moved further along the trail.

Byxbee Park parkrun Strava
Byxbee Park parkrun Strava

Terrain

The course follows a trail made of crushed oyster shells and, according to my Strava, had an elevation of zero, so pretty much as smooth and flat as it gets. As the route consists of two out and back loops, there are three 360 degree turns to negotiate.

Byxbee Park parkrun
Byxbee Park parkrun

Fun Factor

In the US, parkrun is mostly an ex-pat affair, so it’s super friendly and very welcoming to visitors from out of town/overseas. It’s also a pleasant route to run, along the side of the bay with its abundant bird life on one side and a hill covered with an architectural structure made of telegraph poles on the other side. At one point, we were joined on the trail by a hare – so I really did feel like the tortoise! My first visit coincided with Byxbee parkrun’s 50th event, so as an added bonus, there was cake.

The Great Field parkrun

The Great Field parkrun Poundbury

Today, we ran a recently started local(ish) parkrun in Poundbury, on the outskirts of Dorchester, The Great Field parkrun.

Orientation

The event takes place at The Great Field in Poundbury, a new town built on Duchy of Cornwall land, following Prince Charles’ principals on urban planning. The The Great Field, is like an old style village green and is the focal point of the area, so easy to locate. Parking is available around the edges of the field and is free.

The Great Field parkrun Poundbury
The Great Field

Facilities

There are toilets in the Pavilion in the Park, located next to the start. They’re very clean – probably the nicest toilets I’ve encountered in a park. There are only two toilets, so a bit of queuing was involved, which meant I missed the first timers’ briefing. There is a cafe in the pavilion for post run drinks and snacks.

Pavilion in the Park Poundbury
Pavilion in the Park

Course

The course consists of three and a half circuits of The Great Field on, what is described on the website as a ‘medium elevation route’. It’s actually not as hilly as I’d anticipated, although the field itself is fairly elevated and exposed, so it’s quite windy. As it’s laps, there’s one side which requires running into the wind, which was fierce enough to make my eyes water.

The Great Field parkrun Strava
The Great Field parkrun Strava

Terrain

Most of the route is on prepared paths, with a short section of tarmac and a short section on the grass. On the uphill section, there a few drainage channels cut into the path, which needed to be stepped over.

Difficulty

Run Britain rankings for UK parkruns puts The Great Field at 249th fastest parkrun out of 706. It has a total elevation of 37 metres.

Fun Factor

Although it consists of three loops, which is a bit repetitive, I really enjoyed today’s run. The area is well maintained and its elevated position means you get great views of Dorset to enjoy as you run. Also super friendly – I made lots of new friends in the toilet queue.
