Hi local Club/local parkrun

We have some exciting news for the local running community.  I am writing to all local clubs and parkruns.

As you may be aware Street parkrun in Somerset starts this coming Saturday.

The core team, Land owners and funders have invested a lot of time and effort into bringing the event to fruition.

UK wide, Inaugural parkruns have become a phenomenon and this is great but numbers can swell to over 600 when the core team is at its most inexperienced and volunteers pool at its smallest.  Inaugural seekers will come from all over the UK.  In addition, funders and Land owners may be present to watch.

We would kindly request you ask your club members not to run the first event but celebrate Street parkrun at the second event on 12th May. If your club members/parkrunners are very keen to be present at the first event, please can they help by volunteering. They need to register at www.parkrun.com, if they have not already done so, and email streetoffice@parkrun.com.
