Why parkrun is a great part of any race training schedule

35258721425_03d64fca03_k

April is traditionally a big month of running, with races from 5k to 50k taking place all over Ireland and further afield. April might not have brought the spring weather we were hoping for (yet), but it’s certainly seen a lot of running fever and that can only be a good thing!

 

Whatever your running goals, parkrun can be a great base for training and that’s what we love about it – for everyone it’s something different. Lining up at the start at 9.30am on a Saturday will be plenty of people working towards running their first continuous 5k, others looking to run a fast time and break their PB, and some training for much bigger distances. Wherever you are in this big month of running, the social and supportive atmosphere of parkrun can really help you achieve your goals – and here at Intersport we’re right behind you every step of the way!

 

Come rain or shine this April, we’re always on hand at Intersport with plenty of friendly advice, from tips about running through to gait analysis and finding your perfect shoe. Find your nearest store here
