Keep on running...
Newcastle’s parks and green spaces are the perfect place to keep fit. Stunning surroundings, no traffic and a mix of terrain to really push you to your limits. But you don’t need to do it alone. If you’re lacking motivation over the winter months, why not join a Newcastle parkrun?
It’s a 5km run, just you against the clock and everyone is welcome. It’s free to take part, all you need to do is register before your first run and bring along a printed copy of your barcode, otherwise you won’t get a time (but you can still take part!).
The runs take place EVERY SATURDAY at 9am. What are you waiting for? Grab your trainers and get out and give it a try. Parkruns are run entirely by volunteers. If you want to get involved, head to the parkrun volunteers page.
