Junior parkrun is a free, weekly, timed event for children aged 4 -14. It is 2k distance and children can run, jog, walk or skip the course. It is hosted every Sunday at 9:30am in Cotlands Park, Kennoway.
Children can take part on their own or with parents/older siblings. The event is set up so that children are in sight of a marshal at all times. To take part register online (www.parkrun.org.uk/register/) and bring the barcode parkrun send you when you come along – this can be paper version or can be downloaded to a phone – and allows a time to be recorded.
Some children use junior parkruns to test themselves against their own time, and against others, however it is very much non-competitive and about taking part and having fun, both for children and adults. Milestone wristbands are awarded to children as a recognition of attendance and are very popular.
The event is run by volunteers, with around 15 needed every week, so there is an opportunity for all of the community to get involved in this way.
