Junior Parkrun in Long Eaton

A new and exciting Junior Parkrun is being held every Sunday morning at West Park in Long Eaton.

Junior Parkrun is a series of 2 kilometre runs around West Park and aimed especially at 4-14 year olds but everyone can join in. Adults can run with their children and under 11s must be accompanied by a responsible adult - the event is free and you must be registered to take part.

Everyone taking part should meet near the Rugby Club in West Park at 9am every Sunday - suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. Following the event participants might want to consider cooling off in the swimming pool at West Park Leisure Centre or getting some light refreshment from the CafĂ©.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, said: “The weekly junior parkrun is a great way for youngsters and family members to improve their health and well-being, as well as making new friends. The aim is to have fun in the great outdoors, so come along and join in.”
