Ben has cycled down the spine of France from Paris to Nice, sped past maundering zebras taking two wheels from Kilimanjaro to the Ngorongoro Crater, channelled his inner ‘Cliffhanger’ while summiting Mount Toubkal in winter and went mushing with huskies in Swedish Lapland to see the jaw-dropping Northern Lights.  You’ll see him at a parkrun or velodrome on weekends…if you can catch him!

Love on the road: Exodus, marriage and parkrun

When we started our parkrun partnership last year we knew there were lots of parkrunners that had been on an Exodus adventure holiday.  One of the best things about going to different parkruns around the UK is meeting those who have discovered far flung corners of the globe with us and have created life-long memories and friends.

Introducing parkrun Sicily: An interview with Paul Sinton-Hewitt CBE

parkrun Sicily

In October 2004, Bushy Park, West London, Paul Sinton-Hewitt CBE started a phenomenon which would bring communities together and help improve the health and wellbeing of people around the world.  

At the time, there were just 13 runners who joined Paul in running 5km around the park. 14 years later and the parkrun family has expanded. There are now approximately 250,000 weekly parkrunners taking part in 1,300 runs across 19 different countries.
