They take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and are open to people of every ability, from those taking their first steps in getting active to juniors, to those with more experience - everyone is welcome to participate.

I can’t run that far! I don’t like running! I’m not fit enough!

These are all common reasons people give for not taking part in their local parkrun.

We want you to know that you don’t have to run, walking is actively encouraged!

parkwalk is a great way to get active and start your parkrun journey, and you'll be supported every step of the way. Every parkrun event across Suffolk has at least one volunteer tail walker, who is the person or people at the back who always finish last.
