Alney Practice becomes parkrun practice

The Alney Practice is delighted to have partnered with Gloucester North parkrun to become a ‘parkrun practice’.

For those of you that don’t know about parkruns, they are free worldwide events – every Saturday morning at 09:00 – that revolve around completing a 5km route in open spaces. Many choose to run but others push buggies, walk their dogs or amble round while chatting with friends. They are run entirely by volunteers, which makes them an incredibly supportive and friendly environment to get out and feel good about yourself.

If you want to record your experience then, by registering, you receive a barcode that records your time and how many runs you have attended, which can also be a great motivator.

By becoming a parkrun practice we intend to practice what we preach (with members of staff also joining in), as well as promoting the events through posters and in consultations as a really important way you can take control of improving your own physical and mental health.
