Parkrun Practice

In association with Parkrun and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) we are a Parkrun registered practice with Colney Lane Parkrun and would like to encourage all of our patients to get involved in this global initiative!

Parkrun is open to all, including those who are inactive or have health conditions. 

Parkrun can have a positive impact on health and well-being.

Parkrun is:

  • Free!

  • Weekly 5km (3 mile) events for all, every Saturday morning, in areas of open space
  • 2km junior Parkruns for 4-14 years olds and their families on Sunday mornings

  • It is not a race: walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate!
