parkrun is a free 5km run (or walk) which happens every Saturday morning at 9am. It is open to all abilities and ages (children accompanied by adults, dogs on leads). Everyone is able to build a personal performance profile to measure their progress and participation. There are hundreds of parkruns around the world. It is a great way to get some exercise, meet and make friends whilst improving fitness and wellbeing.

If you interested in taking part and/or being a volunteer and are not currently registered please visit parkrun registration page before coming along.
