Meeting the demand
With high numbers attending 2 already established parkruns in Colchester, Active Essex supported the set up of a further parkrun in Highwoods, to meet the demand and capacity in the area. Highwoods parkrun is based in Highwoods Country Park, Colchester.
parkruns are free, weekly 5km community events taking place all around the world at 9.00am on a Saturday morning in parks and open spaces. The parkrun ethos is that it is a positive, welcoming and inclusive experience, where everyone is welcome to come along, whether you walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate. Participants are both male & female, young & old and range from 10 to 84 years old.
