parkrun practice Initiative

The 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 parkrun practice Initiative page.

To find your nearest parkrun, 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.
