Free 2km Run for Children - Every Sunday
|Author: Dom Roberts||Published: 2nd October 2019 09:32|
The Wirral Way Junior Parkrun, Parkgate, had its 10th event on September 29. Since it started, 168 junior runners have covered a total of 804 km.
That's the same distance as Neston to Luxembourg! Junior parkrun is ideal for improving general fitness and is a community focused activity on a Sunday morning. The events are only possible thanks to the volunteers who get involved.
What is a junior parkrun?
it is a weekly timed 2 km run, taking place at 9am every Sunday. It's open to all children aged between 4 and 14, free. It is safe and easy to take part in.
Where does it happen?
Our event is held on The Wirral Way from the access at Station Road in Parkgate (near Park Fields). The route goes out for 1km to Boathouse Lane bridge and back again, so very simple and scenic. Parents are welcome to take part, but of course do not get timed. Parking is available at Ropewalk car park or at the bottom of Park Fields.
How do I get involved?
If you have children (aged 4-14, inclusive) who need to burn some energy off on a Sunday morning, please visit our website and register each child. You will be emailed a barcode that you will need to print off and bring with them to the event. If you don't have a barcode you can still run, but you just won't get a recorded time against your name. You can also follow our Facebook or Twitter page for up to date information.
Why not make a morning of it and visit one of the many cafés/public houses in Parkgate and Neston that do a great breakfast and coffee.
We look forward to seeing you down on the Wirral Way and watch out for our upcoming special events: Family Freight Halloween Special on 3rd November and Christmas Santa Special on 22nd December.
