Rushcliffe Junior Parkrun

After being suspended in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Ruddington’s Junior Parkrun is now back every Sunday morning – although currently for 4 to 10 year-olds only.

The age range has been restricted temporarily to ensure numbers attending are kept down to lower levels than would previously have been the case, to allow for greater ‘social distancing’.

It’s run in Rushcliffe Country Park, Ruddington, NG11 6JS. This is the course…

It costs nothing to join in but you’re asked to register before your first run. Only ever register with Parkrun once. Don’t forget to take a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won’t get a time. However, you’re welcome along whatever your pace!

Whilst COVID-19 restrictions remain, the extra key points to remember are:

  • Only children aged 4 to 10 years old may take part until further notice.
  • Adults will need to ‘socially distance’ at all times, using the space in the field to do so, and support children where practical.
  • The pre-run briefing and warm up will be kept short to minimise the time gathered before – and also afterwards.
  • Participants need to bring printed barcodes as usual. If you’re new to Parkrun, you’ll need to complete a one-off registration online beforehand.
  • Participants will need to be considerate of other park users and maintain trust by role-modelling social distancing, showing respect for others, etc.

Wherever possible organisers urge you to walk, jog, cycle or use public transport when travelling to the event. If you’re a Ruddington resident why not walk up to the park then treat the kids to a double-decker bus ride back home via NCT’s Green 10C service? Just remember your face coverings for the adults.

If you do have to drive, please watch out for other park users when arriving and leaving. Parking may be limited so try to arrive early.

Organisers are always on the lookout for marshals. If you’d like to find out more about volunteering to help, and/or to sign up your four to ten year-old for Ruddington’s Parkrun, you can do so >>HERE<<.
