Faites travailler vos méninges

Courir pour moi, c’est une forme de thérapie. L’exercice est de toute évidence bénéfique pour tout le monde, mais je souffre d’une commotion cérébrale.

Il incite…

Reviewing outdoor transmissions of Covid-19 to support open air events

It is well documented that parkrun can be a catalyst for improving physical fitness and supporting positive mental health. The weekly events bring communities together and can help combat social isolation. For nearly 16 years and across more than 2,000 locations worldwide, parkrun has contributed to healthier and happier communities.   But in March this…
