Telford parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Telford Town Park, Hinkshay Road, Telford, Shropshire, TF4 3NZ. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.
It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!
Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!
Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Telford Town Park Visitor Centre café - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.
So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.
Leisure services at T&W Council is about increasing and improving opportunities for the community to participate in Sport, Physical Activity & Active Recreation.
Being a Co-operative Council is about us working together with our residents, partners and local organisations to collectively deliver the best we can for Telford and Wrekin. We believe that how we do things is just as important as what we do. That is why we have adopted Co-operative Values.
These Values were developed by the Co-operative Commission and are based on what residents and Council employees told the Commission about the sort of council and borough they would like to see in Telford and Wrekin. We have listened to the Commission and are committed to putting Co-operative Values at the heart of our organisation.
Our aim is for our actions to speak louder than our words. We will also promote and share the Values with others across the Borough.
Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust’s Physical Activity team delivers a wide range of community and Leisure Centre based sessions, including Walkabout Wrekin walking for health programme, men’s and women’s only gym and circuits, falls prevention, Zumba etc. supported exercise classes with an annual throughput of approx. 16,000.
"Whilst we are unable to support the funding for parkrun, we are very pleased to market and promote the project, and look forward to our involvement in its development”
