Parkruns popularity and success in Suffolk

0 0
A physical activity revolution is happening in Suffolk thanks to parkrun.

The non-competitive 5km community runs which take place in six locations across Suffolk every weekend have smashed 1,000 weekly runners for the first time.

The parkruns in Suffolk have expanded significantly with weekly runs now held every Saturday morning at 9am in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Kesgrave, Great Cornard and Brandon. A junior run also takes place in Ipswich on a Sunday morning. A seventh Suffolk parkrun is due to launch in Lowestoft soon.

The success of parkrun is largely down to the many volunteers who make parkrun happen and run the local events. Last week alone 188 volunteers supported parkrun in Suffolk.

It's not just Suffolk who have had success with the parkrun - with many runs across the country attracting a keen crowd or runners. With runners receiving a warm welcome - runners of any ability feel comfortable in the friendly atmosphere.
