Just over a year ago my husband and I started participating in Parkrun. It’s a free weekly event, run by volunteers all around the world. Each week people come and run/walk 5 kms on a free timed event. Recently a new course that is close to home has opened and out of the six weeks of it running I have volunteered 5 times. People of all different backgrounds and levels of fitness come together to start their Saturday morning with fitness. Am hoping that I can one day go to a variety of Parkruns around the world.
