What a great start to our Sunday morning and to say goodbye to Central Park with this very special 'bhangra' warm-up. To view the warm-up, please click here.
After many happy years at Central Park we have decided to try something new and re-locate to a different park within the borough. The name of the event will remain as 'Barking and Dagenham junior parkrun' and we are pleased to announce that all of the current core volunteer team are coming with us.
An update on our Run Directors will appear on our news feed within the next couple of weeks.
