Burgess Park Run

Burgess Junior Parkrun is a fantastic free 2K run for 4-14-year-olds every Sunday at 9.00 a.m. We start near to Chumleigh Gardens behind the cafe.


It is a great way for runners and non-runners to build up confidence and keep up some activity, it is timed if you register beforehand. We have attracted a really diverse mix from super speeders to reluctant runners of all ages but new friends are made and the participants support each other making it sociable if you don’t feel like racing your socks off. Parents and carers are welcome to run or walk, a few now run with buggies so they get some exercise too.

For those that do not want to run there are plenty of opportunities to help with marshalling, timekeeping and even buddying up with younger perhaps new participants. We have also been encouraging older, yr10/11 students to volunteer as part of their Duke of Edinburgh schemes.
