Parkrun is an organisation who set up free 5km timed runs around the world. It’s a great opportunity to run for your own enjoyment, a chance to socialise, increase fitness and be active with friends.
We are lucky enough to have a Parkrun right on our doorstep around the wonderful Aireville Park and are meeting monthly on a Saturday morning to give it a go. Parkrun isn’t a competition amongst others, only yourself. The course is 3 miles, a few laps of the Aireville park and entirely on tarmac. You can walk, jog or run at your own pace. All you need is a pair of trainers and comfortable clothing.
After the run we will head to the café for a post-run drink and chat at The Coffee Lounge in Craven Swimming Pool followed by a play in the park (please bring own money for this). It will be a lovely, leisurely Saturday morning activity which will also help to increase self-esteem and well-being. A physically active child is a healthy child!
