What is parkrun? 

parkrun events are free, timed physical activity events that happen locally every weekend. Participants can walk, jog or run, and they are open to all ages (from 4) and all abilities. Children under the age of eleven years must be accompanied by an adult.   

There are 16 junior parkrun events (2k) that take place at 9am on Sunday mornings. Check out which parkrun is nearest to you. 

The Herts Sport & Physical Activity Partnership is fully supportive of the parkrun practice initiative, which is a collaboration between the Royal College of General Practitioners and parkrun UK. To find out more information about the initiative please visit the the parkrun blog

parkrun has events for older children and adults too! To find your nearest parkrun for adults, visit the parkrun website

parkrun is organised by volunteers and is always delighted to hear from people who would like to get involved; how little or often is entirely up to you – there’s no ongoing commitment.
