Put on your running shoes and run every Saturday in the Groningen Stadspark. From the 29th of February 2020 onwards you can participate in the “parkrun” running event every week. At the event you run, jog or walk 5 kilometers with other runners. Parkrun is not a race against each other or the clock, but a social event.

Parkrun Groningen takes place in the Stadspark. Every runner can participate. Whether you are a novice, advanced, young or old, that does not matter at parkrun. Parkrun is for everyone: The event tries to get the whole Netherlands moving.

The Groningen edition is certainly not the first parkrun edition. Since 2004 running events have been organized all over the world. From Singapore to Sydney and now also in Groningen. Parkrun is organized by volunteers and that is why participation is completely free. All you have to do is sign up via the registration link.

Afterwards, drink a coffee at Sportpark Velocitas, get in touch with fellow runners and make parkrun your weekly event. Parkrun is a great start into the weekend: The event starts at 9 a.m., so afterwards you can start your Saturday fresh and early.

So what are you waiting for, get moving and sign up via the website!

When: From February 29 every Saturday at 9:00 AM
Where: Groningen City Park, Concourslaan 1
Price: Completely free!
