About us

Daventry junior parkrun is a FREE 2km event for junior runners of all standards, which takes place every Sunday at 9:00am in Daventry Sports Park, Browns Road, Daventry, NN11 4NS. See our home page for more details.

The 2k timed run can be whatever you want it to be, whether for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the family to get involved and come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park. 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 in advance before your first ever parkrun. Your individual barcode can then be used for this weekly 2k run, or on any of the weekly 5k parkruns around the country.

The junior parkrun is a great way to get involved and introduce yourselves to a sport without any of the normal outside pressures. A great way to improve health, confidence and to enjoy a great location. It can also be part of getting fit for sport for your school or to train for a specific target such as the Mini-Marathon trials, or for a full 5k parkrun distance. In short, you are welcome to come along and have fun.
