Parks and Run
Our popular Parks and Run programme has been going for more than two decades. Parks and Run is a monthly programme of fun runs for all ages and abilities. Events usually take place on the first Sunday of each month starting at 10am. Each month the event moves to a different park, giving you the chance to explore new places and see new sights. There’s always a choice of distances, ranging from 2km for beginners to 10km for the fittest runners, and all routes are circular. Routes can be downloaded from each monthly entry on the events calendar. Taking part is free and there’s no need to pre-book: just turn up!read more
