Street Parish Council hope to bring parkrun to Street
In an initiative spearheaded by Street Parish Council (SPC) Chairman Tim Rice, there are plans to bring the international movement “parkrun” (www.parkrun.com) to Street.
What is parkrun?
It is free weekly timed runs held all over the world in pleasant parkland on weekend mornings, the runs are open to all – from juniors and first timers to Olympians and octogenarians…
Whether you’re young or old, male or female, fit or unfit, able-bodied or not, you’re always welcome. It’s not about racing, it’s about running.
You don’t pay to run, ever. And every event is organised by a group of local volunteers.
And at the moment this is the slight sticking point. Meetings have been held and a venue has been found, but to ensure that parkrun is a sustainable venture, SPC are asking for more volunteers to come forward to help out – in jobs such as putting out the cones, registering runners and logging their times.
If you think you can give some time on a Saturday morning please contact Tim Rice on email@example.com or contact the Parish Rooms on 01458 440588 in office hours.
