Join Outdoorlads for a morning run (or walk) and post event coffee (and maybe cake) in Oxford.

The course is 5000m (5k) long. This has been accurately measured by with a professional measuring wheel. The course is at University Parks, Oxford. The course is run entirely on permanent paths.

The important bit... This is about personal goals. You run/walk at your own pace, don't be scared that you may be slower than other people. Some walk, some run, some jog, some do a combination of all three.

To take part in a Parkrun and get your official time, you will need to have registered to receive your all important barcode. You will need to bring a hardcopy of this barcode with you. Parkrun events are run nationwide and indeed internationally, so once you're signed up you can attend anywhere and if this becomes popular we may even try other Parkruns in the area.

The official start of the run is 9am and we will meet at 8:40 for a quick catch up and attend the run briefing. Look for the red flag.
