First Timers initiative for Portrush parkrun

1 Mins read

If you have always wanted to come along to parkrun but were not sure about coming on your own, not sure what to do, or possibly just a bit self conscious, then delay no more, Saturday 26th September is the day to try it out.

Whether you want to try running , jogging or walking , or maybe even just want to come along and see what all the fuss is about , East Strand beach is the place for you.

This will give you a chance to see that parkrun is not just for serious runners, its for everyone regardless of their ability.

We guarantee that you will find us a friendly and welcoming bunch.

To all you regulars, this is also an ideal opportunity to introduce someone to parkrun. It may be you can already think of a few names, they might be completely new to running or perhaps someone you know who, thus far, has done all their running by themselves.

Remember parkrun is a timed run, its not a race.

First timers are welcome every week at our event, but 26th will be all about you.

All you have to do is register www.parkrun.org.uk/register/form/, print off your barcode and come along.

Two simple things to remember:

Bring your printed barcode if you want an official time in the results. You can run if you don’t have a barcode, but we cant give you a time.

Children U11 must be accompanied by an adult at all times

And its all completely free, every week.

The run starts at 09.30 and we meet at the Watersports Centre beforehand.

There will be a special first timers run briefing at 09.15 , this will also give you a chance to meet other first timers and perhaps strike up new friendships.

Once tried, never forgotten.

If you have any questions in meantime message the organisers on Facebook or send an email [email protected]

Remember to mark 26th September in your diary.
