From Cave Hill to Sugar Loaf

I never really dreamt of running in the Olympics. No more than any other young athlete growing up in Belfast did. I was going to be a footballer. Play professionally and drive a sports car.

From a Dad: how parkrun transformed my son

My 13-year-old son Charlie* recently completed his 80th parkrun. It is now four years since we started our Saturday ‘Dad and Son’ routine, and Charlie’s physical strength, stamina and all-round sporting confidence have been thoroughly transformed thanks to parkrun.   When Charlie was born there was speculation about all manner of nasty diseases, chief among them being…
