Parkrun continues to prove a hit with recreational runners & walkers from across the Mid Ulster area.
Over the past few weeks there has been an increase in both the number of walkers & the number of people that are new to running who see this as an ideal way to get fit and make new friends.
One participant commented, “I haven’t done any exercise in years and Parkrun has given me the kickstart that I needed, I enjoy it as you can go at your own pace whilst also trying to beat your own time from the previous week. Its great fun and everyone tries to help each other to get around the trail.”
Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone regardless of ability and are safe and easy to take part in. If you would like to join the run next week at the Mid Ulster Sports Arena all you need to do is register at www.parkrun.org.uk/musacookstown/. The run starts each week at 9.30am.
Thanks to the volunteers that continue to make the Mid Ulster Sports Arena Parkrun such a success, if you would you like to help out please come along to the Mid Ulster Sports Arena on Saturday mornings at 9.15am.
