Celebrate togetherness with Thank You Day

We’re proud to be part of the nationwide Together coalition of organisations who are uniting for an extra special Thank You Day this June.

 

Over the weekend of 4-5 June, many parkruns and junior parkruns will be uniting in a celebration of togetherness with a special parkrun and picnic. Why not find your local parkrun and join in?

 

For Thank You Day this year, we are inviting everyone to participate at their local parkrun, whether that’s as a walker, a runner, a volunteer, or simply for a chance to get out in the fresh air and join in with the local community. Everyone is welcome. So why not invite a friend, a  neighbour or even just someone who you would like to thank, out for a walk, a cuppa or a chat?

 

parkrun is a vital space for connection in thousands of communities across the UK. Each week people get together, outside in our green spaces, to walk, jog, run, volunteer, catch up with friends and connect with others, together.

 

parkruns are safe and inclusive spaces for anyone to come along and be active, in whatever way suits them.

 

There’s no pressure to complete the whole distance, many people volunteer or come along to watch. Children can take part from the age of four, and prams are welcome too. It’s a whole family affair. Bring along a friend, or a neighbour you haven’t connected with for a while and let’s celebrate each other, together!

 

Find your nearest parkrun and register on the website here. We’re looking forward to celebrating togetherness with you on Saturday 4 June and Sunday 5 June, at parkruns and junior parkruns across the UK.
