Hillsborough parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Hillsborough Park, Middlewood Road, Hillsborough, Sheffield, S6 4HD. 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 one of the following nearby cafes. The cafe's around the park aren't large enough to accommodate everyone but you will find parkrunners in: Costa Coffee, 301-305 Middlewood Road, Hillsborough, S6 1TG - Riverside Café, Catchbar Lane, Hillsborough, S6 2LX - Jam's Café, 181 Middlewood Road, S6 4HD - 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.
Hillsborough parkrun was started thanks to funding in part by the University of Sheffield. Juice is a highly innovative staff health scheme brought to you by the University of Sheffield, specially designed to help you take care of your everyday health and wellbeing at work. The idea is to make sure you can access health and wellbeing services whenever you want, and both Juice and the University of Sheffield are proud to support this fantastic local community parkrun.
Juice brings together a whole range of services, from advice about nutrition and beating stress, to activities such as the outdoor bootcamp sessions and tai-chi classes. The scheme has been organised by the university Human Resources department with you in mind, and various external companies are lending a helping hand to supply different services for you to take advantage of.
Juice is here for everyone, but it’s not compulsory so don’t worry. There’s no fixed set of things to do, and you can do as much or as little as you like, whenever you like. The advice and guidance that you will receive as a university member of staff has been tailor made as much as possible to your individual needs.
You can check out these Juice activities, plus many more, by visiting our dedicated website: https://juice.group.shef.ac.uk
