Mission: To create a healthier, happier planet.
parkrun UK is a not-for-profit organisation that supports volunteers in local communities to deliver free, weekly 5k events.
There are more than 540 parkruns all around the country every Saturday morning in a wide variety of parks and open spaces, with 1.6 million people in the UK having taken part.
parkruns are non-competitive and open to people of all ages and abilities. Volunteer Tail Walkers ensure that nobody ever finishes last at a parkrun, and most events conclude with a hot drink and socialising in a local cafe.
The emphasis at parkrun is on regular participation rather than performance, with free milestone t-shirts awarded to people who complete 50, 100 and 250 parkruns, and volunteers who help out 25 times.
