Parkrun is a nation-wide movement to get people running once a week in a friendly, community race suitable for all. You get great club runners, your average jogger, complete starters, would-be slimmers, children and happy parents pushing buggies with - in extreme cases – twins on board. A complete mixture. Truly, all are welcome.

Woodhouse Moor sees 400-500 people at it each Saturday at 9.00am and it is an inspiring sight! The complete course, 3 times around the park, is 5 km but some beginners feel comfortable walking part of it or even just doing one or two laps. No-one minds. And it all happens on our doorstep. We meet at 8:45am outside the church and walk to the start together.

Several church members take part fairly regularly, youth, students, the slightly older and the over-50s are all represented in the Wrangthorn Runners. On the first Saturday of the month St Augustine’s provides hospitality for the Park Run, serving tea, coffee and cakes to the runners.
