Welcome to parkrun on ChangeX! Our goal is that there will be a parkrun in every village, town or city that wants one. We believe it’s everyone’s right to get up on a Saturday and run in a 5km timed event without paying for the pleasure. We're always looking for individuals to come forward and lead the charge to bring a parkrun to their neighborhood. Below you'll find all the information you need to get started!
The local athletics clubs have been very enthusiastic about the event and have gained new members across many abilities, and several casual running and walking groups have been formed, not to mention new friendships, social events and even holidays being organized between participants of the weekly events. One of the great appeals of parkrun is that it is consistent and predictable: it's always on at the same time and same place, it's free, and it's very enjoyable!

How to get involved
Organising a weekly parkrun will take approximately 4 hours a week
We want to make sure that every town or village that wants a parkrun has one so if you'd like to start one in your community, take a look at what's involved and then click on Start a parkrun to get started. We'll provide plenty of support along the way!
