‘junior parkrun’ has officially arrived in Slough!
Posted: Fri, 16 Aug 2019 13:59
This popular national initiative launched at Salt Hill Park in July, courtesy of the council's Active Slough team and a group of committed local volunteers.
It provides free weekly 2km timed runs for children aged 4-14 at 9am every Sunday. Parents are welcome to run, jog or walk alongside their children but must not cross the finish line, to ensure only children's finish times are officially recorded.
Free parking is available at Salt Hill Park. All junior parkrun finishers aged 4-14 are also eligible to receive 20 per cent off activities at Salt Hill Activity Centre on presentation of their unique barcode on Sundays.
Before joining the group on Sunday mornings, junior runners need to register in advance at www.parkrun.org.uk/register, providing them with a unique individual parkrun barcode, that must be presented at the end of the run for a time to be recorded against their name.
