Clive is encouraging everyone to run, jog, walk or volunteer at a ‘parkrun’ on the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of October to help celebrate the 12th anniversary of the running phenomenon.
Greenwich parkrun is held every Saturday 9:00amn at Avery Hill Park Café and the Eltham Junior parkrun starts at 9:00am every Sunday at the Eltham Park South café.
To mark parkrun’s birthday Clive will be at the start of both events on Saturday 1 October and Sunday 2 October.
Parkrun UK supports local volunteers to establish and deliver free, weekly, timed runs for their communities, which are accessible to both runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
Saturday 5k events are open to everyone, and 2k junior parkrun on Sunday is for children aged from 4-14.
Clive says “parkrun and junior parkrun are two of the most accessible activities you will find anywhere. They are completely free, open to anyone and perfect for families because they can participate together.
“The fact that parkrun is a run not a race, and finishes with people enjoying tea and coffee together, shows that it is as much about bringing the local community together each week as it is running.”
