Run along and join the fun
Published on Monday, 23rd January 2023
Our free Junior Parkrun is a great way to get active with the youngsters.
Held every Sunday from 9am in Riversley Park, the family friendly 2k run is suitable for children aged four to 14.
You do not have to complete the course in a timeframe, instead the aim is just to have fun whilst getting active, no matter what your pace.
Cllr Julian Gutteridge, Portfolio Holder for Health and Environment, said:
“We all know the great health benefits running and walking provides. Our Junior Parkrun is a wonderful way to get the little ones out having fun whilst getting some essential exercise.
"It’s also a great way to encourage the teenagers away from screens whilst providing a great introduction to running.”
We are always looking for volunteers for our Parkrun events, so if you would like to lend a hand, please get in touch through Junior Parkrun website.
