Loverun at parkrun

Anyone fancy trying a gentle jog and a bit of banter in the park?
Loverun at parkrun on the 11th February will be our First Timer Event. So help St Valentine spread the parkrun love by bringing someone you know wants to start running and we will have some of our loved up volunteers run/jog/walk or a combination of all three to show them how great parkrun is. One of our cupid volunteers will aim to complete in 45 mins through a combination of jogging and walking so everyone will feel comfortable. And for those super fast first timers we will have cupid pacers at 5 min intervals!
Spread the love, spread the parkrun love run!
