Junior parkruns are a fantastic way to get children and young people out into the fresh air and enjoying some exercise – and a brand new one has started in Lurgan Park!
Taking place every Sunday at 9.30am, children aged 4 to 14 can come along and enjoy walking, jogging or running their way around the 2k route, at their own pace.
The run is free and timed – all you have to do is register your child for their first run and bring along a printed copy of the bar code. You only need to register once and they can take part every week.
The first few weeks of the run has seen over 60 children taking part and enjoying themselves, so why not sign up your child and get involved.
To register your child simply log on to: www.parkrun.org.uk/lurgan-juniors then meet at the Cricket Pavilion in Lurgan Park on Sunday mornings.
The Junior parkrun is organised by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, the Public Health Agency and St Peter’s Athletic Club.
