New parkrun and Junior parkrun for London !

New parkrun in London!


England Athletics in London is pleased to be supporting and helping fund a new junior parkrun and a new adult parkrun in London. Providing more opportunities for more people to get into regular running.


Working with Queenspark Harriers Athletics Club we’ve been able to help fund the development of Queen’s Park London Juniors parkrun for 4-14year olds. The programme launched on Sunday 11th December and they had nearly 40 runners!  Of which for 30 it was their first ever parkrun.  For further information – CLICK HERE


Down in South East London we’re pleased to have helped fund the new Beckenham Place parkrun for 11+ participants. This new parkrun started on the 19th November and averages over 150 participants on a weekly basis!  - For further information – CLICK HERE


We’re committed to supporting the development of running opportunities in London. Check out RunTogether which is being officially launched on the 12th of January!  Our new product helping to support running groups, leaders and participants. We’re also supporting the setup of a weekly regular running opportunity in both Westminster and Barnet, hoping to launch in early 2017.


“It’s an exciting time for the sport. More and more people are taking up regular running and we’re pleased to be-able to help them on their journey !” Tim Howells, Project Manager, England Athletics
