Coventry parkrun ongoing from Saturday 3 November

There will be a new start/finish for Coventry parkrun ongoing from this Saturday – 3 November.

Coventry parkrun will start and finish on the wide tree-lined avenue from the perimeter path heading towards the visitor centre.

This will not affect your Coventry parkrun experience.

The course will monitored for a couple of weeks whilst we settle in and make sure that everything is working ok.

There will be an area for small items such as clothing and water bottles. This won’t be manned and all items will be left at your own risk. Please don’t leave any items at the Visitor Centre as these will be removed.

The new start/finish area is close to a number of memorial benches and memorial trees. Please ensure that you don’t leave items on these. There is also plenty of green gym equipment nearby should you wish to stretch before/after parkrun.

The website and course description will be updated as soon as we’re able.

Coventry parkrun celebrates the 70th Birthday of the NHS – NHS70

The NHS is celebrating 70 years this year. They have teamed up with parkrun to encourage people to come and celebrate with a special nationwide parkrun NHS birthday celebration on 9 June 2018.

Coventry parkrun will be holding a special NHS themed event and would love as many people as possible, particularly NHS workers, to join us at the War Memorial Park.

There will be cake* and as ever fancy dress is encouraged, so dig out your doctors/nurse/paramedic/patient outfits!

(*healthier alternatives also available)

Running isn't a requirement, we have plenty of walkers each week who complete the 5k.

If you feel you aren't able to complete the course then you could join in by volunteering.

parkrun is entirely run by volunteers and is free for all to participate in. Just register for free at and print your barcode and bring it with you.
