If you fancy some early morning exercise or if you are in the ‘Mile a Day‘ challenge, why not come along and complete your mile (or 3) with us. You can run, walk, or do a bit of both to complete the 5k Parkrun / Parkwalk distance. We meet up (look out for the CSC flag near the start line) for a chat and warm up from 8:30am, with the run/walk commencing at 9:00 and we will be there for the duration, cheering you on at the finish. You are welcome to leave any jackets, keys, drinks bottles etc with the CSC team for safekeeping while you are taking part. The event is free and there is no cost to attend or take part.
If you would like to join us. please click on the BOOK NOW button to let us know that you will be coming along. You don’t need to book and you can just turn up on the day, but it does help us to know how many people to expect.
The 5K Parkrun is a free, fun, and friendly weekly community event and you can cover the 5k by running/jogging/walking all at your own pace. The Parkrun is free to enter but you do need to do a one-time Parkrun registration to get your personal event barcode. Once you have your unique barcode, you can then use this at any future Parkrun without having to register again. You can still do the run/walk without a barcode, but your time will not be officially recorded. If you have not done a Parkrun before, I can highly recommend it, no matter what your ability. However slow you think you are, there will most likely be others behind you, and as you go round the super volunteer marshals are really friendly and encouraging, as are many of the other participants.
There is free parking at Houghton Hall Park as well as overflow parking just behind the car park at the Catalyst (previously Aldwyck Housing Group) car park (what3words: just.deputy.began) which is accessible via Porz Avenue / Houghton Hall Business Park.
Children are welcome but please be advised that anyone under the age of 18 who participates in our events or activities must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or an adult guardian at all times. Please see our policy regarding children for further information.
Due to their nature, we are unable to properly risk assess our group activities including running, walking, and cycling. Whilst our group leaders endeavour to keep everyone as safe as possible, these are led, not coached sessions, irrespective of whether a qualified coach is in attendance. As such you are ultimately responsible for your own safety. See our Health and Safety Policy for further information.
