We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with The Athlete’s Foot. Over the last month, The Athlete’s Foot have been visiting parkruns around the country, volunteering and making connections within our parkrun communities. We are delighted to have them onboard as a National Sponsor and look forward to their support and connection at our parkrun events through Wear Tests, participation and helping celebrate anniversaries.

 

Our partners play a crucial role in helping to ensure that parkrun always remains free for everyone to enjoy and participate whenever they choose. Please support them when you can so that they can continue to support parkrun.
