Fancy a walk, jog or run in one of our local parks? Join one of the Parkruns; a five kilometre timed walk, jog or run that happen across the country at 9am every Saturday morning.
We’re really proud and grateful to the army of volunteers that organise the Parkruns in North Lincolnshire; Central Park, Scunthorpe, Normanby Hall, and Ancholme Valley Way, Brigg. Visit their Parkrun pages to register or just head to the venue one Saturday morning 9am to see what it’s all about. It really is a sight to behold – people of all ages, abilities, some with push chairs and dogs enjoying our beautiful parks whilst getting fit.
A dedicated Junior Parkrun event takes place weekly at Brumby Wood Recreation Ground on a Sunday morning. Visit the Junior Parkrun website for more information.
Is it true you’re allowed to WALK at Parkrun?
Yes! People all around the world are joining in and walking at Saturday morning Parkrun events.
Recovering from an injury or illness, have a long-term health condition or would like to be more active?
Walking can help prevent and manage health conditions, lift your mood, and get you moving more in the great outdoors.
Bring a friend, family member or a work colleague and give Parkwalk a go!
Meet in front of Normanby Hall at 8.45am, where there will be a briefing for first-timers and an opportunity to ask questions. Marshals will be along the route offering you encouragement and support.
It’s FREE and a chance to walk and talk, catch up with a friend or enjoy time with your family in the beautiful grounds of Normanby Hall Country Park. Afterwards why not grab a coffee at the café, it’s a great way to meet fellow walkers.
It doesn’t matter how slow you go, don’t worry about not being fit enough, there’s a volunteer Tail Walker, meaning nobody finishes last!
