Craigavon’s ParkRun event has been drawing in runners from across the borough - with around 350 runners participating last Saturday.
The hugely successful ParkRun event, which offers free 5k timed runs, is organised by volunteers every Saturday morning and takes place at Craigavon City Park.
Volunteers and runners alike meet at 9:30am each Saturday to be a part of this energetic initiative and, last week, they were joined by an extra 200 people as part of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s ‘NHS Couch to 5k’.
The ‘NHS Couch to 5k’ plan is designed to get people off the coach - and gradually work them up to running 5k or for half an hour, in just nine weeks.
