Junior parkrun needs you!

Tuesday 5 November 2019 Junior parkrun needs you!


Junior parkruns are springing up throughout the country and are a popular way for young people aged 4 years – 14 years to exercise. We want Sutton-in-Ashfield to have its very own junior parkrun but we need some volunteers to make this happen.

Junior parkrun takes place at 9am every Sunday and this is a free activity to enable young people to access regular exercise. Knowing that you are a part of making this activity happen can be very rewarding. It doesn’t matter if you can’t commit to volunteering every week – the more people that can help with the organisation, the more flexible we can be in terms of the commitment that we need.

Ashfield District Council, parkrun UK, local councillors and local schools are committed to bringing a junior parkrun to Sutton-in-Ashfield in the early part of 2020. We will need volunteers from the local community to ensure its long term future.

We would like to hear from you if you think that you could help in any way or know of someone who might be able to.
