Junior Parkrun Launched
A new Junior parkrun event has started, following on from the success of the hugely popular Market Harborough parkrun.
More than 5,000 people have completed the Market Harborough parkrun since its launch in 2015. Now, thanks to the combined efforts of the parkrun team, volunteers and support from Harborough District Council, a junior version has been launched with nearly 120 young people taking part in the inaugural event.
Junior parkrun is a 2km run for young people aged four to 14 years. It takes place at 9am every Sunday in Welland Park, Market Harborough, starting at the corner of the children’s play area. Parents are free to run with their children but must not go through the finish funnel to get a time. You can walk or jog the route - everyone’s welcome.
To join in, register with parkrun at www.parkrun.org.uk, print your barcode and bring it along on the day.
