It is entirely organised by volunteers - email to help.


parkrun is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and adults at risk. For our full safeguarding processes and policies, including how to report a concern, please see our Safeguarding Hub.

We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee and sit at the picnic seats by the canal. Feel free to bring refreshments. Please bring home any litter, we do not provide bins - please come and join us!
