All parkruns are 5k in distance and are free to enter. Kent parkrun ambassador Jacky MacDonald says: “The 5k distance is just right to encourage the couch potato and also for athletes to check out their pace. Friends, families, dogs, children in buggies, athletes, joggers and walkers can take part – it’s fully inclusive.”

All are welcome: joggers, dogs and babies in pushchairs
