Calling All Park Runners!

Houghton Hall Park Run  Weekly Free 5km Timed Run

Parkrunning is a rapidly growing grass roots activity that is springing up all over the UK – over 2 million men, women and children have completed at least one.

Our nearest Park Run is the Houghton Hall Park Run, which takes place every Saturday at 9am sharp. There are usually around 200 participants who have pre-registered on the Park Run website. Park Runs are not races!! They are timed runs and take place in a spirit of mutual encouragement and fun.

The Houghton Hall course is a two and a half lap flat course through open countryside and wooded glades. Every Park Run is of length 5k, so where ever you join in you will have a comparable time.Children from the age of 11 can run on their own but younger children must be accompanied by an adult.

This is a fabulous opportunity to get fit and make friends – there is a place to have drinks afterwards.

And Park Runs are free! They are manned entirely by volunteers, including local runner Roger Fenwick.

Please come along and join the revolution!
