parkrun changes lives

As a charity, we’re committed to understanding what prevents people from taking those first steps into healthier and happier lives. With a razor sharp focus on removing those barriers, parkrun creates safe and welcoming spaces in the hearts of local communities for people to enjoy movement in the company of others.

parkrun provides free and inclusive events in more than 2,400 locations, across 22 countries every single weekend. More than nine million people are already registered, and more than 800,000 different people have volunteered, but we can do more.

your support today can help us achieve our goals

Completely free to join in, with no subscription fees or up front costs, and no special kit of any kind required, parkrun is for anyone. You can take part by walking, jogging or running the routes, volunteering, or simply coming along to watch and soak up the feel-good atmosphere.

We want to reach more people, with more parkruns, in places where they might be needed the most. How?

  • Focusing on areas of social deprivation
  • Engaging with and understanding those that might not have, or may, never engage with more traditional physical activities or ‘sports’
  • Inspiring a generation of children, young people and their families to be active together
  • Championing and celebrating volunteering
  • Keeping our events completely free, forever

Your support today can help us do this faster.
