Great start for first junior parkrun at Slades Park

The first Slades junior parkrun got off to a great start with 94 young people taking part in the 2km family friendly route!

The free weekly event is safe and easy to take part in and encourages young people to participate and have fun whatever their pace.

Martin Kimberley, Active Dorset Chief Executive said "It was brilliant to see so many young people having fun in the very first junior parkrun at Slades Park, a huge thank you to the fantastic team of volunteers who make it possible. To have this event in the park weekly is a great addition to the current facilities and activities and we look forward to welcoming more participants to walk, run, skip or jump their way around the course!"

junior parkrun takes place 9:00am every Sunday at Slades Park, Ensbury Avenue, Bournemouth, BH10 4HG (see course page for more details). Slades Park Pavilion will be open for the duration of the event serving a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks.

junior parkrun events are for juniors only (4 to 14 year olds), however due to COVID-19 restrictions only those aged 4 to 10 years old may take part until further notice.

Regular updates can be found on the Saldes junior parkrun facebook page and the Slades junior parkrun website.
