Junior Parkrun - This Sunday
It is Chippenham Junior Parkrun's 3rd Birthday this Sunday in Monkton Park. If your child is a regular, hasn't been down in a while or is still waiting to make those tentative first steps to run, jog, walk, hop, skip or jump around the park it'd be great if they could join in with the celebrations.
If it is your first time arrive a little bit early at 8:50am for a briefing, just down from the Tenth Hole Tearooms. You should be able to spot a friendly gaggle of hi-vis volunteers waiting to answer any questions you have. A main briefing will follow shortly after at 9am.
More details can be found on the website:
