Gladstone Park in Dollis Hill has joined the global phenomenon of parkrun, an initiative offering free five kilometre runs in over 150 locations across the world.
Gladstone parkrun takes place every Saturday at 9am year-round, and aims to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability. Parkrun is not a race against other runners, but an informal 5km timed run.
Registration is free on the parkrun website at www.parkrun.org.uk. Registration only needs to be done once, and is then valid at any parkrun event in the world.
Results are posted after each event and include an individual results page for each runner. Participants can track their weekly progress through the parkrun website that uses a unique age and gender grading system.
The event is managed entirely by volunteers, and offers an opportunity for local residents to come together and keep fit in a fun and welcoming environment.
