Why we support parkrun

A quarter of UK adults are considered inactive, doing less than 30 minutes of moderate exercise a week, leading to increased health problems. People from lower-income households are more likely to be inactive, which contributes to increasing health inequality.
With the help of a network of passionate volunteers and supporters, parkrun offers an inclusive and accessible way for people from all walks of life to keep active.
