It could be YOU!
now your New Year’s Resolution to be one of the people who you see
running regularly in Kingston may have fallen by the wayside, well
parkrun has come to the rescue!
January they are doing a special parkrun event for First Timers in Old Deer Park, Richmond.
FREE event starts at 8.45am with a special briefing, where volunteers
will answer questions on running, followed by the 5KM run at 9am.
don't worry there will be a number of pacers who will walk/run you
around the course at various speeds, so however slow you think you are
there will be someone to help you along the way. The course at Old Deer
Park is flat and on grass plus consists of 3 laps allowing you to drop
out at anytime you feel you have had enough exercise.
once you feel confident about your running ability you can join one of
if you are interested in participating in the FREE event or just coming
and talking to the volunteers, you need to register here by 6pm on 14th
question and answer session will take place on the grass in the park
adjacent to the west wall of the “Pools on the Park" at 8.45am
And you never know this time next year you too could be one of those people you see running regularly in Kingston.
