“Student life is better when you live active”
A joint-report from ukactive, British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS), Precor and Scottish Student Sport (SSS), called the ‘British Active Students Survey’, has found that participating in physical activity, including sports participation and gym membership, improves student’s personal wellbeing, mental wellbeing, social inclusion, and academic attainment and employability.
Throughout March, the Students' Union and the Academy of Sport are offering active sessions you can get involved with, regardless of your prior ability. We hope that you find an activity that you enjoy doing and can wish to continue doing beyond this month.
junior parkrun is a series of 2k events for children aged between 4 and 14. They are held in areas of open space around the UK. They are open to all, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. There are free events up and down the country that you can get involved in. Find one close to you here.
If you wish to get an official time for this event please register with ParkRun in advance and print your barcode prior to the day. Registered parkrunners do not need to register separately for the junior events.
If you do not have a junior, please take part in the adult Saturday version instead. Please note that we will not have Students' Union staff members at the Junior ParkRuns but there will be a lot of ParkRun volunteers on hand at the event.
