Parks and Run

Parks & Run - Media

Our popular free 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.

Booking is not required. Please note that under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.

See details of future events below or on our events calendar.

Parks and Run needs your help!

Could you be a Parks and Run volunteer leader? This commitment will only be a few times a year and will include leading runs, marking out routes and meeting the runners on the day. First aid training will be available. The Volunteer leader must be willing to run 10K. If you are interested, please do email us at
