Is there a substitute for parkrun?Well yes, we think so

Control on boulder

Many of us will miss our weekly parkrun fix over the next few weeks, so BASOC are offering a substitute - a collection of downloadable maps showing enjoyable 5km runs in lovely forests, which require only basic navigation skills. HOWEVER, YOU MUST OBEY ALL CURRENT REGULATIONS IN PLACE AT THE TIME YOU INTEND TO RUN. Currently this includes NO UNNECESSARY TRAVEL, so you must not drive to these forests. You may go as a family group (same household) or alone.

YOU MUST CHECK THE REGULATIONS BEFORE YOU GO - THEY MAY CHANGE AND WE CAN'T GUARANTEE THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO UPDATE THIS PAGE IMMEDIATELY.

IF YOU FEEL UNWELL, STAY SAFE INDOORS.
