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 www.parkrun.org.uk/register and print your barcode and bring it with you.
