The (not) parkrun Initiative


A quick note to let you know about the *(not)parkrun* initiative starting very soon.

** Just to be clear from the start: This is NOT the restart of parkrun **

If like some of the core team, your running/walking/jogging adventure has slowed (or stopped) since lockdown, then *(not)parkrun* could be the perfect encouragement to get you back out there.

In short, you will be able to log a time for a 5k walk/jog/run that you've done at anytime during the week.

Importantly, this should not be on our usual parkrun course and should incorporate all the current guidelines for physical activity.

It works a bit like the parkrun ‘Freedom run’ – an opportunity for you to self-declare the date and time of a walk, jog or run and at the same time represent Winchester parkrun.

You can record up to one activity per day, with your fastest time each week included in a weekly results table.

Full details are here:

We'll be keeping you posted here as more details emerge. Do feel free to let us know if you have any questions.
