Ottershaw Memorial Fields is now home to a free, friendly, timed 5k run/walk every Saturday morning at 9am, one of the growing number of parkruns held every Saturday across the country at 9am. It really is inclusive, you can run, jog or walk at whatever speed you’re comfortable with. You can even do it with your kids, dog or pushing a buggy.Run totally by volunteers, parkrun is rapidly becoming a worldwide hit with free runs now taking place at over 440 locations across the UK and in 14 countries as far flung as Russia, New Zealand and South Africa. Since its inception in 2004 at Bushy Park in London, over 2 million people globally have participated, all for fun and all for free.At Homewood parkrun (the name for our Ottershaw Memorial Fields run) we pride ourselves on being part of the community. We support local business and we’re always up for a chat and new friendships are forged every week. Why not join us, you can walk, run or, if you don’t feel up to running, why not come along and help volunteer – it’s easy! You could even just come and cheer to see what we are about. Think you’ll be too slow and be last? You won’t, we always have a tail runner to make sure everyone gets round safely so they are always the last one to finish!If you fancy joining us, here’s your simple to do list to get you ready for Saturday.1.
