On Saturday 19 August 2017, following the World Athletics Championships in London, the UK's National Lottery funded Olympic and Paralympic athletes are teaming up with parkrun to encourage the nation to get active with #teamparkrun

5k parkrun events take place in parks across the UK every Saturday at 9am (England & Wales)/9.30am (Scotland & NI), offering a free and easy way to take your first steps into becoming more active. Walk, jog, run or volunteer - everybody is welcome!

To thank you for all your support for sport at all levels over the years, and being right behind them every step of the way, the UK's top National Lottery funded athletes will be right behind you on #teamparkrun, acting as tail walkers at parkruns across the country.

No one finishes last at a parkrun.
