A great way to keep fit and meet up with others who are keen on running and fitness.
Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone and are safe and easy to take part in.
In Newcastle the adult run is at 9 am every Saturday starting from the Moor, close to the Cafe. The junior parkrun takes place close to the same spot on a Sunday at 9 am. This run is 2 km.
It’s free but please register before your first run and only ever register with parkrun once. Don’t forget to take a printed copy of your barcode to every run (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won’t get a time.
Newcastle Park Run are always looking for volunteers/marshalls for both the adult and junior runs.
Other parkruns take place at Saltwell Park, Rising Sun, Gibside, Sunderland and Whitely Bay to name a few.
