Placing the same importance on supporting the local community as us, parkrun was a natural organisation for Exodus to support!
As experts in adventure travel around the world, much of what we do depends upon the local community. We know that without a strong local community a lot of experiences that our travellers have wouldn’t be possible. This is why we have a strong Responsible Travel policy which keeps us on track ensuring that we always leave places the way we would like to find them and that communities benefit from our visit.
parkrun is phenomenal at forging community roots around the UK and the world, while empowering individuals and helping the nation to get more active. All this ensures we are helping create healthier and happier communities across the country.
Using your local Saturday morning parkrun as a base, you can help yourself to get ready for one of our walks, treks or cycles and continuing it long after you have returned home!
Our favourite thing about parkrun is that it encourages and enables everyone – regardless of fitness or running ability – to get involved and be active. With our partnership helping to expand the parkrun movement and keep it free, we can’t wait to meet you all out there on Saturday mornings or on one of our trips.
