parkrun is a free event for those in the community wanting to take on a challenge and complete one of the 5km (or 2km for junior runners) events that are held weekly all over the world.

parkrun offers a completely inclusive experience where everyone is welcome no matter your physical level of fitness, so whether you are walking with a friend while have a catch-up, or if you’re looking to achieve that illusive PB, parkrun is perfect for you.

There is no time limit, allowing you to walk, jog or run your race, your way. It can also help improve mental wellbeing as you enjoy some of the beautiful surrounding in the great outdoors and make new friends along the way.

parkrun also offers amazing opportunities to be part of the wider community by simply spectating and encouraging the participants as they make their way round the course, or by going that extra mile and volunteering to help run the events by marking out the courses, marshalling or assisting at the finish line.
