Partnership with Parkrun worth £3m
Updated: Mar 16
Collaboration aims to create 200 new events and boost participants from under-represented groups.
A £3 million investment in parkrun will see the free 5km runs focus on helping more women and people from lower socio-economic groups to get active.
We'll collaborate with parkrun for three years to support the creation of 200 new events across England.
The National Lottery money will help to build on the phenomenal growth parkrun has seen in the 14 years since its creation.
With events taking place in 584 locations around the UK each weekend, parkrun has seen more than 1.8 million people take part to date and our aim is to extend that network.
