Mile End Park's parkRun in 2013

Every Saturday at 9am, you’ll notice a well organised lineup of punters by the entrance to the stadium, young and old, ready to head on their parkrun.

Mile End Park is a beautiful park to go for a run in. Just a gentle hill to jog up, a scenic trip via the canal and then through the gardens. Two laps is a great start to the weekend.

If you’re just strolling by, it’s a great place to get your coffee with other people who like to seize the early morning weekend start with a breath of fresh air.

parkrun volunteers organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs. They are great fun for people of all ages and running abilities, and you’ll often see families running too. It’s free but you must register in advance. Come check it out or maybe even join in one this Saturday! For more information visit
