Our parkrun week in pictures, April 28th 2018

Would You Run Naked?

Have you ever noticed someone running naked at parkrun? Maybe you’ve run naked yourself? It may not be as obvious to spot as one might think, since we’re using the word “naked” to describe running without technology but fully clothed.   At parkrun we are interested in being more in tune with our bodies, our environment,…
