About Us

Rosliston parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for participants of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Rosliston Forestry Centre, Burton Road, Rosliston, Swadlincote, DE12 8JX. 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, regardless of age or gender, 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 run, jog or walk 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 The Hub Café, located near the main buildings at the Forestry Centre - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other parkrunners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new 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.

  • South Derbyshire District Council: South Derbyshire District Council funded the start-up of the event.

  • National Forest Company: National Forest Company along funded the start-up of the event.

  • The Forestry Commission: Provide parkrun use of the Forestry Centre facilities.
