parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world every Saturday morning. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.

Despite the name, parkrun loves having people of all paces there – walkers are welcome! Your local parkrun is organised by volunteers, so even if you don’t want to walk or run, it is a great opportunity to connect with your local community.

To get your result recorded each week, you’ll need to register, print your barcode and bring the barcode along with you. You can read more about parkrun, find your closest event and register at:
