INTERNATIONAL PARKRUN DAY

Bexley Parkrun celebrated the 12th birthday of Parkrun with a Saturday run in Danson Park (1/10) organised by Event Director Keith Dungate. Rt.Hon.David Evennett MP was present to start the run off, and meet and congratulate participants at the finishing post. Over 300 runners and supporters attended.

Started in Bushy Park Parkrun has since grown into an international organisation with hundreds of Parkruns in 14 countries.

Mr. Evennett praised the organisers and volunteers for all their work and spoke of the importance of running to help increase fitness and health as well as to control weight and meet new friends. “Such runs are also fun and we have seen today in Danson Park a wide variety of participants – it has been a great morning.”
