parkrun joins the Sport for Development Coalition

Athletes run through park

A global charity, parkrun’s mission is to improve health and wellbeing, with a particular focus on those who might be marginalised from opportunities to be active and socially connected. This aligns with numerous areas of #OpenGoal such as ‘improved health and wellbeing’, ‘stronger communities and social cohesion’ and ‘tackling health and societal inequalities’.

Currently, parkrun delivers over 2,200 parkrun and junior parkrun events in areas of open space across 22 countries around the world, with around 300,000 people taking part at these community-base events every single weekend.
