Residents invited to step out with Parkrun

People from across the Black Country are being invited to take part in the national Parkrun weekly sessions at the Dell Stadium in Brierley Hill.

The free 5k run takes place every Saturday at 9am, with the first run of this year happening on Saturday 21 April.

The event starts and finishes at the stadium and is part of the national Parkrun social movement, which sees weekly-organised events in parks and green spaces all across the world.

It is hoped the run, which started at the Dell last year, will help people who want to get more physically active outdoors whilst attracting those who already run and want to do more. There is no need to pre-book and the group meets at the stadium. New runners are asked to arrive by 8.45am. Alan Lunt strategic director at Dudley Council said:

“Dudley Council is committed to helping borough residents be active in the great outdoors and it’s great to see the weekly parkrun starting back up after the winter break.

“I would encourage anyone who’s interested in taking on more physical activity to coming along and joining in with these sessions.”

Participants of all ages and fitness levels are welcome but children must be aged four and over. No buggies or dogs are allowed and refreshments are offered following the run.
