Top 10 reasons to do parkrun

In no particular order, these are my top 10 reasons to do parkrun. Please let me know if you have some more of your own:

1) parkrun is a challenge - For most people, 5km is not an easy challenge. And then there is the weekly challenge to improve your PB.

2) parkrun is free - No cost to join. No cost to do any parkrun.

3) parkrun is addictive - But far better for you than most addictions!
4) parkrun gets you out in the fresh air in a lovely park location on a Saturday morning.

5) parkrun helps you meet many new like-minded people.

6) parkrun gives you free T-shirts - Complete 50, 100 and 250 parkruns (and 10 for kids) and you get a very smart free technical t-shirt at each milestone.

7) parkrun stops you drinking (as much) on a Friday night.

8) parkrun will get you fit - Well it can certainly help.

9) parkrun is suitable for people of all ages and abilities - It can be for all the family, kids, adults, grandparents, everyone is welcome.

10) parkrun starts at 9am and by 10am you have done your exercise for the day and you can smugly get on with the rest of your weekend.
