parkruns are free, weekly, 5km timed events, organised by volunteers who love running. parkruns welcome all abilities and are known to be friendly and sociable events.
Runners are electronically timed and given barcodes allowing them to track their position and progress.
The very first parkrun event in Leeds was the Woodhouse Moor parkrun started in October 2007 (still the most popular). This was initially called 'Leeds parkrun', but the name was changed as more parkrun events were added. There are now 11 spread out across the city!
Each parkrun starts at 9am, and you will probably find a number of the runners heading to a local café afterwards for a chat.
