Showing our children what community means


My daughter and I go to parkrun every weekend.


I’m a Run Director, we both volunteer and we both run, my husband and I tag team who runs with our two children and we all volunteer together.


My daughter is seven years old and has volunteered 31 times and is on her 27th parkrun.


My son is five and has just ran his 10th parkrun and volunteered 11 times.


We are working towards my daughter’s 50th parkrun and my son’s 25th vollie.


parkrun is something we do as a family every Saturday and what we look forward to each week. We love showing our children what community means. It’s changed our lives.
