Are you a parkrunner?

parkrunIf not, then perhaps now’s the time...parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, they’re free (although you must register in advance), they’re safe and they’re easy to take part in.

parkrun events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and people of all abilities are encouraged to take part. Once registered with parkrun (and you only need to register once), you can participate in any parkrun event at any time without even letting parkrun know that you are coming along. Just make sure you bring your barcode, which you get at registration, with you!

For those of you who already enjoy a weekly parkrun look out for the forthcoming anniversaries in your area...with just one day left in June, we thoought it was a good time to list July’s parkrun birthdays!
