Paul Sinton-Hewitt introduces new fitness gear


Over the past couple of years, as I’ve taken a step back from the day to day operations at parkrun, I’ve been working on a new project—something separate to parkrun but inspired by the hundreds of conversations I’ve had with folk at parkrun events all around the world over the last 14 years.

I’ve always wanted parkrun to be inclusive. To be encouraging and supportive. To remove as many barriers as possible to physical activity. And I’m immensely proud of what we have achieved together at parkrun: the world’s biggest running event positively impacting the health and happiness of more than three million people so far.

But one barrier has persisted. One that we’ve not been able to overcome through parkrun.
