A Junior Parkrun is being launched at Stanley Park this weekend as part of the ‘Get Kids Active’ initiative.
Parkrun currently offers free 5km runs in Crosby, Croxteth Hall and Princes Park with the latest addition being a Junior Parkrun aimed at children aged 4 – 14. The junior run will take place every Sunday at 9:00am, starting on 18th September.
All children of four or over are encouraged to take part, whatever their circumstances. They can run, jog or walk the course, so all are welcome. It’s free and it will be fun! To take part you will need a barcode which can be accessed via an online form and requires printing out and taking to the event. If you do not have access to a printer, we are offering you the chance to get your child’s barcodes in school at the following times and dates:
Tuesday 13th September 3:00 – 3:30pm (Media Suite – Access next to After School Club)
Friday 16th September 8:45 – 9:15am and 3:00 – 3:30pm (Media Suite – Access next to After School Club)
The event are also always looking for adult volunteers to support the events in roles such as marshalling and timekeeping. More information is available at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/ and http://www.parkrun.org.uk/stanleypark-juniors/
