Join us for the nation’s biggest sports day

Next Saturday (27th August) will be a special parkrun at Thetford. We're having an optional "Sports Day" fancy dress theme, as part of both Thetford's Great Festival, and the national "I Am Team GB" celebration. We'll be starting as usual at 9am from the entrance to the priory on Water Lane.

It's free to take part, and all are welcome to attend and run, jog or walk our 5000m route in Abbey Meadows. It doesn't matter if you can't go quite as fast as Mo Farah, we have regular participants who complete the route in times between 17 minutes and over an hour. The route will be signed and marshalled, and there's a tail walker to make sure no-one gets left behind. And if you're not up to 5km, you can still come and do what you can, or just cheer on the other participants.

For those who haven't been before, if you want an official time and position at the end, please register in advance online and bring a printout of your barcode with you.
