Cornwall parkrun will celebrate its 6th anniversary on 4th August, admittedly a week late – which doesn’t really matter, as it will still be an occasion to remember!

The Tauranga International Marathon: It’s not like any other marathon event. Well, you can still run/walk 42.2km, 21.1km, 12km or 6km—plus there’s a kids (and parents!) dash. But here’s the clincher—it’s the first ever international marathon event to be held in New Zealand’s sunshine capital.
