Runnymede ‘Homewood parkrun’ which will be relocating to Ottershaw Memorial Fields in January 2017. The parkrun is held every Saturday morning at 9am.
‘parkrun’ organise free weekly 5km timed runs around the world. Participants can run or walk and the 5km distance offers an achievable distance to those who are currently inactive. Because of this, alongside the social element and opportunity to participate for free, hundreds of new participants are registering for parkrun every weekend. The run is fully inclusive and appeals to individuals from all demographics; both men and women, young and old as well as those with disabilities.
Each local event is run by volunteers from the community, and Homewood parkrun has an established team of volunteers that lead the event. The run has attracted an average of 115 runners per from across the borough, as well as further afield. The course at Ottershaw Memorial Fields will involve starting and finishing on the field, with the route going through the woodland trail.
