A couple of our year 9 students have taken up Parkrun. The fact they are getting to Central park for 9am on a Saturday shows some dedication. They have not found it easy but most importantly they haven’t given in. Parkrun is a great community event and it is free! It is an event that is suitable for all from seasoned runners to buggy pushers. You can run, jog or walk the event with the satisfaction that you have started your weekend in a positive and active manner.
I asked the students what the best part of parkrun and they said “trying to beat my personal best and also trying my hardest”.
If you are interested go to www.parkrun.org.uk/ where you can find out more information and also register. I run parkrun most weeks and have seen the positive effects that it has on people and I would love to see more students on the start line at the beginning of their parkrun journey. You may spot some other staff members in attendance.
