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 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 5K Parkrun is a 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 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.
