Starting from March 2nd Irish Heart Foundation will partner with Parkrun to attract more walkers and walking groups to Parkrun events.
Parkrun take place in 84 locations every Saturday morning at 9.30am. Parkrun are free, timed, 5km events, attendees can run, jog or most importantly walk.
Each week Parkrun will have walking leaders meet and greet walkers keeping them informed and escort them through the event so no one will be left behind.
If you have a group that would like to come along for a new challenge, then Parkrun would love to see you.
