Parkrun is not just about running


Every Saturday morning at 9.00 around 350 people of all ages, shapes and sizes gather around the bandstand at Boultham Park to prepare for their weekly 5K (three mile) run around the beautiful surrounds of the park.

In fact this scene is mirrored throughout the rest of the UK as these ‘parkruns’ attract 80,000 people each week thus contributing to the general fitness and social wellbeing of the local communities they serve.

If you would like to join in, register for your first run on and take the printed copy of your barcode down to Boultham Park tomorrow morning. Enjoy!
