Kit out the kids with MRP Sport


Hey parkrunning Moms and Dads! We know that exercise does wonders for your kid’s growing body, but don’t forget about the great things it does for their brain too! Exercise boosts brain function, improves memory, and best of all, more exercise makes kids less anxious and happier too.


It’s a no-brainer… this Saturday, it’s out with the TV, and in with a scenic and energising parkrun instead!


But first, get your mini-parkrunners kitted out with active gear that’ll see them through their Saturday parkruns and beyond: afterschool fun, extramurals and weekends too! For girls, think cool leggings in her fave colour, and a comfy tee or vest to match. For boys, check out Maxed’s range of Dri-Sport shorts and tees. Kick their active look up a notch with a pair of Maxed trainers from size 12 and up.


However your little athlete chooses to move, help them get those goals with MRP Sport’s big savings! It all starts at your nearest store, or online at
