If anyone lives within a reasonable distance of Killerton House there is something called a Parkrun that takes place every Saturday morning at 9:00am. It is a FREE 5K event around the Killerton Estate and many junior runners take part.as well as about 200+ adults. It is a very good fun event that allows someone to do a regular run without taking up too much time from a precious Saturday. It is a cross-country event so good stamina is required – the slowest Junior one week took 40 minutes so probably walked part of the way. To take part you need to register on the website before 6pm on the Friday of the week you want to run. The registration process is simple and once registered you do not need to do so again and you can take part in any of the 80+ Parkruns around the country. The registration leads to printing your own personal barcode which contains your details. You need to take the barcode with you on each run. There are also the Exeter,Seaton & Exmouth Parkruns, which are similar to Killerton but a more flat run. Great for getting that PB on. Again a 9.00am start but as with Killerton you really need to be there a good 20 minutes before as there is a slight walk to the start line and to give yourself time for a little warm up before the run.

If you are able to help on the night we would be very grateful, please let me know in advance. * If we are able to use the track field in the school, we will, but this will depend a lot on the weather and if the field is dry enough. We would use the track for speed running & sprints.
