(not)parkrun

Inspiration:

While events remain suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions, parkrun has introduced '(not)parkrun' which allows individuals to record times for 5K runs anywhere. More information can be found via the parkun blog and (not)parkrun FAQs, below:

The club is supporting this idea, by identifying safe, off-road courses and arranging timing for a limited number of participants. The locations of these courses are different from the parkrun sites in order to avoid attracting crowds. We are also keen to make sure that social distancing and all other legislation from Welsh Government is followed. The results will be recorded on this website. parkrun also provide the facility to record your 5K (not)parkrun times. You can submit these weekly, yourself, by accessing your parkrun profile.

 

Participation

Participation at our Saturday sessions is only for paid-up members. 

We'd also appreciate if you could volunteer from time to time. If you can offer your time, please inform Chris or Laud in advance. For reasons stated above we cannot allow spectators.

This is a great way to have a relaxed & enjoyable run or even to check out your training by trying to beat your PB. 

Depending on local lockdown rules, you can try the venues (below).
