parkrun

The parkrun team organise free, weekly, 5 kilometre timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free and easy to take part in. These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and they encourage people of all abilities to take part; from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians; from juniors to those with more experience; all are welcome.

Full details, including registering your personal details in their database, can be found at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/.

BFR members take part in many of these events particularly at Bracknell, Thames Valley Park, Upton Court in Slough, Frimley Lodge, Basingstoke and Woodley. Generally the runs start at 9:00am each Saturday and most BFR members thoroughly enjoy these events.

Please note that these events are mostly not accurately measured so whilst the club are happy for results to be included in our databases the times will not qualify for WICAT star rankings or as club records.

Parkrun's are free to enter but obviously the organisers do incur costs. BFR may from time to time use a Park Run as a championship event. When we do so we will ask our members to make donations (we’ll arrange a collections box) which we will then pass onto the organisers on your behalf.
