The holidays are over and we are all in need of some desperate metabolism enhancing sport. Not everyone can afford to pay a gym membership and most of us do not have the time. So, what are you to do? Parkrun!
You can take part in ParkRuns! What is parkrun you ask? Parkrun is an organised free, weekly, 5km timed run. They are open to everyone, free and are safe and easy to take part in. They are held weekly in parks and pleasant surroundings with all the bells and whistles of a paid event. People with any ability are encouraged to take part, from first-timers to Olympians.
So what is the catch, how can they be free? Parkrun has official sponsorship deals making it possible for the events to be free. Your results are recorded using a printed barcode.
You will not be able to come up with an excuse to take part in a parkrun! It’s as free as a Junk Mail ad and it will do you the world of good!
