This Saturday 7 October marks a very special day for parkrun as it will be exactly 13 years since 13 people completed the very first parkrun! The international parkrun community is now huge and here at Intersport we are happy to be part of the family. As a proud partner and helping to keep parkrun free forever, we’ll be celebrating #parkrun13 across the country and hope that as many parkrunners as possible will support their local event to make tomorrow a day to remember. Happy birthday, parkrun!
