Walk @ parkrun

Feb

It has been a busy but exciting few months for the team at Walking In Your Community working in association with parkrun UK to introduce and promote 'walk @ parkrun' in Waterworks Park, Belfast and Wallace Park, Lisburn. 

The initiative has been highly successful, with both parkrun pilots experiencing record numbers over consecutive weeks. Promotion of the event took place through leaflet drops, networking with local community groups and organisations alongside significant and targeted online promotion.

Many of those walking have expressed to us the great sense of confidence and achievement that has come with walking the 5km each Saturday morning cheered on by the wonderful team of volunteers. For many it is changing a way of life focusing on the health and benefits of walking while for others they are enjoying meeting other and exploring their local greenspace.

Those interested in walking at either of these parkruns can do so online. www.parkrun.org.uk/register and select #ParkWalk as your club.
