The other weekend marked the 12 anniversary of Park Run. I joined the fantastic volunteers and runners at Chippenham Parkrun.
Parkrun event takes place every Saturday at 9am and there are a number locally including Chippenham’s Monkton Park event and another starting soon in Melksham. They help bring the community together to participate in non competitive exercise and promote healthy living for all ages. Despite the downpour crowds of people turned up.
Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. Last week’s was the 126th event that they have organised.
