Growth of Basildon parkrun offer
Parkrun is a collection of free, weekly community led running events that happen all over the world, taking place in local parks and open spaces. Adult parkruns are 5km and take place on Saturday mornings, whilst the junior parkrun's, for children aged 4-14, are 2km and take place on Sunday mornings.
Much of the success and popularity of parkrun comes from the fact that it is a positive, welcoming and inclusive experience where there is no time limit, and no one finishes last. They welcome people of every ability and all walks of life, from those taking their first steps into walking/ running to elite runners. Furthermore, all events are organised entirely by volunteers.
