Have you been missing Dukeries junior parkrun?
Have you been searching for an opportunity to have a bit of fun, walking, jogging or running in your local neighbourhood? Something that is free, easy to do and doesn’t require any experience or fancy gear?
Look no further! PARKTOBERFEST is here, and absolutely anyone can take part.
Building on the success of the 5k (not)parkrun, we’re encouraging people to get together with friends, family, neighbours (respecting local and national government guidelines) and inspire each other to complete as many (not)parkruns as possible in the month of October.
And the great news is now junior parkrunners can register their own walk, jog, or run. Like normal junior parkruns, which are 2k in length, 4 – 14 year olds can complete this distance and see their name in lights when they log their time.
You choose the course and decide when and how you want to take part. You could stroll or jog around a park, plot out a route around your local streets, or complete your (not)parkrun as part of your daily routine. It all counts, it all adds up, and it can all make you healthier and happier. (not)parkrun can be whatever you want it to be.
To help you decide where to (not)parkrun during parktoberfest, we'll be sharing some of our favourite 2k routes around the local area, especially for junior parkrunners
Once you have completed the distance simply log your time via your parkrun profile. If you’re new to parkrun, just sign up to register and take part. Results are shared each Monday.
Whatever the weather, whatever the time of day, wherever you live, join thousands of others around the world in completing some (not)parkruns for parktoberfest and get a much-needed dose of fun, activity and positivity.
Get active. Have fun. (not)parkrun.
