parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs at over 600 places in the UK and a lot more around the world.
They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. You turn up in a park, run (or jog or walk) 5km (just over 3 miles), choose whether to stay for coffee and a chat and carry on with your weekend!
The organisers want parkrun to welcome everybody and have recently produced some leaflets to encourage more people with a learning disability to join in.
This summer four parkruns in the West Midlands are holding special events to encourage more people with a learning disability to join in.
The first three runs were in Shropshire earlier this year and the next one will be at Walsall Arboretum parkrun on Saturday 21st September 2019.
You are invited to come!
