Running - a fantastic way to get healthier
Running is one of the most accessible and simple ways to improve your health. That's because almost anyone, anywhere can put on a pair of trainers and start. Plus, the benefits of regular running to your health and wellbeing are far-reaching.
There are many ways that regular running can help keep your body healthy such as being good for your heart and bones, helping to manage your weight and boosting your immune system. It can also help keep your mind healthy by helping you sleep, easing anxiety and making you happier.
The fact that parkrun is free and encourages people to get active makes parkrun and PruHealth ideal partners. That's because PruHealth want you to live life well, and we're here to help you do it by making it cheaper and easier for you to get healthy, and rewarding you when you do.
We'll help you get healthier
As soon as you join PruHealth, you'll get discounts just for living well through Vitality - our health and wellbeing programme. Every time you do healthy things through our partners - like participating in a parkrun - you can earn points with Vitality.
You'll get 10 points for taking part in a parkrun, and 5 for helping out as a volunteer. As you earn points, your Vitality status increases, which means we can give you bigger rewards*.
Rewards to keep you motivated
We know that getting healthy takes a bit of time and effort. So, to keep you motivated, we give you rewards for doing it. We've chosen rewards that will help you rest, relax and live life well. So once you’ve completed your run you can reward yourself with free weekly cinema tickets, savings on a Champneys spa day or overnight stay, savings on standard annual passes to theme parks and even holidays*.
