parkrun® organise free, weekly, 5k timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, are free and are safe and easy to take part in. ARR members take part in parkruns all over the country every Saturday morning either as runners, volunteers or organising team members. Our nearest ones are Nostell, Pontefract, Frickley Country and Wakefield Thornes.
The club includes parkrun results in our race statistics so make sure your parkrun profile shows your club as Ackworth Road Runners to ensure your results are included in our statistics.
The club encourages members to wear club colours at parkrun on the first Saturday of each month to raise awareness of the club.
Every year, we select 4 different parkruns as part of our Grand Prix event. For 2020 these are:
York (24th Oct.)
