New Junior parkrun - Bowling Park

Time: - | Venue:

We are looking for parkrun fans, keen volunteers and all round wonderful people. :-)

I am in the process of setting up a new junior parkrun in Bowling Park.

For those who don't know - junior parkrun is a global organisation that offers a 2km run, every Sunday morning, to children aged from 4 to 14.

Currently there is just one junior parkrun in the city - in Roberts Park in Saltaire, and there is a huge opportunity to provide a junior parkrun for the children on the other side of the city.

There are certain things that need to be in place before the event can start - landowner permission, a certain amount of funding and a team of core volunteers. I have a small and committed group of volunteers already, but need more! Would you be willing and able to join the core team?

You would need to commit to about an hour in Bowling Park at 9.00 on some Sunday mornings. In return you would have the satisfaction of knowing that in a small way, you are helping to improve the fitness, mental health and happiness of the children of Bradford.

Previous experience of either parkrun or volunteering at a similar event is not necessary - it is straightforward and lots of fun.

If you are able to offer your time and enthusiasm, then please contact me - either by email: or phone: 01274 221400.

Thank you.
