Submitted several times in the past but for what it is I don't think you'll find a better freebie.

All you need is your barcode!

Kickstart your New Year with parkrun. Free, weekly, accurately timed 5k runs/jogs/races for all.
The runs take place on a Saturday morning (junior runs take place on a Sunday).

parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.
These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and we encourage people of every ability to take part; from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians; from juniors to those with more experience; we welcome you all.

Ive done over 60 of them including one in South africa in October and did Santa one on xmas eve and in one of pictures in local paper.

yes excellent idea.

I started in my local park in January. it's been really good. children have their own runs but can join in the adult ones if supervised. there's old, young, dogs even babies being pushed in buggies that take part. fun experience

Don't forget the free milestone t-shirts! Juniors get a white one after 10 runs, then it's red for 50, black for 100 and green for 250 runs for everyone. They're good quality, provided by Tribesports, all you have to pay is a couple of quid P&P. There's also a purple one for volunteering 25 times.

If the urge to do this madness ever did strike me, I have a watch and parks are free to get in, so don't really see the freebie in this fruit loops, the lot of you, but good luck to ya

I envy those people who can run, really envy them, I'm agoraphobic which means I'm not house bound but I struggle to live everyday like what you'd term a normal person does, anyway aerobic exercise creates new brain neurons >

I plan to exercise as much as possible and maybe this neurogenesis will enable me to start running, and once I start I won't ever stop believe me.

A lot better than doing nothing living under a bridge though.

I lost a stone but luckily found it again in the cupboard

Great organised free events to get you up out of bed on a Saturday. I went regularly until I injured my (already shakey) achillies while chasing down 1st place at the Gnoll Parkrun
