With parkrun being unable to run due to Covid-19 restrictions, a new strand of parkrun has been running to help parkrunners and newcomers alike take part within the parkrun community.
To take part you will need an activity tracker. All you have to do is complete a 5k walk or run and log it through the parkrun website. You don’t even have to do it on a parkrun route! While this can be through a smart watch or activity tracker, there are many apps you can download on your smart phone that can do this for you.
Each week the number of runs is tabulated into a league table for each parkrun location. So if you want to run to compete you can or it can just be a way to stay active!
You can take part with your friends (respecting social distancing) or on your own and unlike the regular parkrun there’s no need to get up early on a Saturday to take part!
