Saltwell Park, East Park Road, Gateshead, NE9 5AX
Parkrun is a weekly free 5km timed run, which takes place every Saturday morning at 9am.
It takes place in Saltwell Park, a beautiful Victorian Park.
Parkrun is organised by volunteers and is a friendly, supportive run around a 5km course. Anyone is able to take part, from those just getting back into fitness and perhaps doing the N.H.S C25K to those who are experienced runners.
You need to register on the Parkrun website before your first run and print off a bar code to bring with you. No barcode= no time!
Afterwards there is a chance to chat and have a post run coffee at the cafe in Saltwell Towers.
Fantastic atmosphere- very encouraging to runners of all abilities.
I find ParkRun very helpful and I now am able to run 5k! They are a friendly bunch and it doesn't matter if you are slow (or last as I often am)
