As part of the weekly calendar of events, Parkruns are an established fixture that many of our Front Runners attend across Brighton and Hove (Hove Park, Hove Promenade, Brighton East, Preston Park) and in the surrounding areas (Worthing, Lancing Uxbridge, Shoreham, Bushy Park), sometimes in other countries (Australia, Ireland, etc.) on Saturday mornings.
We are the biggest regular attenders of Parkrun of all the Frontrunners worldwide, with Adelaide not far behind us. Averaging around 10-12 runners usually taking part across different runs each Saturday.
We also regularly pick a Park run to adopt and then as a club attend as volunteers, runners or supporters. Usually followed by a Coffee at the closest Cafe.
You can often find us running in our Purple Front Runners tops, if you would like to join us on a Saturday morning before coming to the club night on Wednesday, we would love to see you. At all park runs, you can run, jog or walk the 5-kilometre distance. If you’re new to Park Run registration is completely free and only needs to be done once as you will need a Barcode to scan at the end of a run.
Upcoming Club Park Run can be found on our events page (or message us to find out more) .
Every couple of months, we take over the volunteering of a parkrun, we would also like to invite anyone who has never run or walked 5k, or taken part in a park run to join us at these parkruns. One of the values of our club is to encourage people to get running and we are more than happy to motivate you along the route.
