With schools breaking up for the summer in many of the parkrun countries, and the weather becoming more than encouraging to spend time outside and plan holidays, it is a perfect time to take care of yourself! And we are here for you all – every week, wherever you are, all summer.

 

Summer is a perfect time to make an additional effort and take care of ourselves, individually and with our friends and families. And parkrun is a great place to enjoy time together! We are here for everybody all year long.

Meet your neighbours!

 

It may be that this summer is a great opportunity to visit one of the parkrun events near you. You do not have to travel a long distance to experience parkun in a new way. Look for a parkrun event near your home parkrun and visit your parkrun neighbours. Wherever you fancy discovering a parkrun nearby, please remember to check the event page before you set off, listening carefully to the first timer welcome and ensure a safe travel to and from the event.

Make new parkrun friends!

 

If you happen to have your summer plans set already and are going to visit another country where they can also attend a parkrun, it is a nice way to make new parkrun friends. We are a global community and our events are a really welcoming place.

Join parkrun as you like

 

Remember that parkrun is always the same experience wherever you join in! And remember that it is always your parkrun – you can come along as a walker, a volunteer, or just head down to your local park and watch what’s going on. Wherever your summer holiday plans take you, parkruns are free, weekly community events for all ages, abilities, backgrounds and walks of life. Everyone is welcome to take part – however they like.

I never believed I could

There’s no need to do the 5k at parkrun. Lois Rowland was a parkrun volunteer for more than ten years before eventually deciding to have a go at the 5k, following an ectopic pregnancy.   Having now completed 50 parkruns, she tells us her story.   My husband is a keen parkrunner and has been taking…

Living as myself

parkrun is committed to ensuring our events are as accessible as possible to as many people as possible, which includes breaking down barriers to signing up. As a result, and following a lengthy international consultation, we evolved the gender question on our registration form in 2020 to include ‘another gender identity’ and ‘prefer not to…
