New free running event launches on Saturday

The inaugural Middleton Woods parkrun will take place on Saturday (28 April 2018), starting from Leeds Urban Bike Hub (the former golf clubhouse) at 9am.

parkrun is a free, weekly, 5km run or walk. To take part you need to register online and print off a bar code – you only have to do this once. Then just turn up!

This is the second parkrun event to launch in South Leeds. Cross Flatts parkrun has just celebrated its fifth birthday and regularly attracts over one hundred runners and walkers.

Everyone is welcomed and supported at parkrun. It’s a great way to get fitter and a positive way to start your weekend. parkrun is free because each event is run by volunteers, so if you don’t want to run but want to be part of the parkrun community please come and help with a range of roles from marshalling to timekeeping.
