Recently I attended a reception in Parliament to celebrate parkrun UK‘s 12th anniversary.

Parkrun UK organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and they encourage people of every ability to take part.

I attended with local resident, Lousie, who organises parkrun events in Nonsuch Park. Full details, including directions, can be found on their website here, and the juniors here.

It was a great opportunity to hear more about the work that parkrun do across the UK in their local communities. I hope to see Nonsuch parkrun continue to go from strength to strength.
