What is the course like?
The 5km (5,000m) parkrun courses will vary across the county so do check your local parkrun website / Facebook page for more information.

What does it cost to join in?
Nothing – it’s absolutely free! But please register online before you participate. You only ever need to register once with parkrun. Your barcode is universal. Just don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode on the day. No barcode, no time.

Getting there
Please, wherever possible, they encourage you to walk, jog, cycle or use public transport when attending your local parkrun. COVID-19 secure measures are still present at this time, so please avoid car-sharing.

Parking and facilities
This will vary across the county so do check your local parkrun website / Facebook page for more information.

Volunteering – parkrun needs you!
It is entirely community-led and organised by volunteers. If you are interested please email your local parkrun. Information can be found on your local parkrun website / Facebook page.
