We are fortunate to have two parkruns in the local borough: Cyclopark parkrun and Shorne Woods parkrun. Taking place every Saturday morning at 9am, these free 5km timed events welcome all abilities. Bring the whole family including the dog and enjoy a walk, jog or run around the park. If you don't fancy running, then you can always volunteer and help cheer everyone on! There's also Gravesend junior parkrun for 4-14 year olds every Sunday.
