I'm looking to start a parkrun in Parma. Parkrun is a society that hosts 5km runs in parks all across Europe (UK, France, Poland etc.) and other countries in the world. The run is absolutely free for the runners and is open to all types and levels of athlete. The main objective is to socialise and enjoy running together.

Their are already two parkruns in Italy, but in the UK there are almost 400, so we have some catching up to do!
We would host this event at 9:00am every Saturday morning in Parco Ducale but to do this we require a core group of volunteers who can help organise the run and the runners! The volunteering is very easy and it is a great way to get to know the local community, make friends and keep fit.
If you already know parkrun or would be interested in forming part of the core volunteer team of Parkrun Parma please let me know and I will organise an aperitivo for all of us to get together.
I hope to start it in October. If anyone is interested or has any questions please let me know!
Parkrun really is a fantastic thing!
