We are very forunate to have a new parkrun in Hyde Park which started in January 2017. Several people from the club were instrumental in getting this started and continue to take an active role in the core team and weekly volunteers essential to it's success.
Along with other parkruns it is a free, weekly, timed 5k run held every Saturday morning and starts at 9am. It is open to all and people regularly run, jog, walk or a mixture of all of those, round the park. It already has a great reputation for the super-friendly and supportive team that turns out rain or shine to organise it.
All you have to do is register on the parkrun website, print your barcode and bring it along with you whenever you run at Hyde or any other parkrun.
The course is three identical laps of the park, starting and finishing at the bandstand in the middle of the park. It weaves through the ornamental areas of the park then loops through the woods before retruning to the bandstand.
There are also plans to launch a Junior parkrun, 2k and on Sunday mornings, at Hyde in the near future.
Come and give it a go sometime soon!
