On Saturdays we like to take part in Park Run. If you don’t already know what Park Run is, it is a run that takes places every Saturday morning at 9am in parks all across the UK. The Cardiff Park Run takes place at Blackweir and is 5KM long. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you run - everyone is invited to join in.

Make sure you register beforehand and print out your barcode so you can take part in the run. The bar code will measure your time but that’s not really what the run is all about. The run is only 5KM long as it gives everyone the chance to get involved even if you are walking at the end.

When we turned up for our first park run one Saturday morning we didn’t really know what to expect. It was a bitter cold morning, but there was no rain in site. Hundreds of people turned up to do the run which was amazing, it’s good to see everyone getting involved first thing on a Saturday.

All of the events are run by dedicated groups of volunteers who are amazing at getting everyone organised. They are also great at cheering everyone along and there is even a photographer taking photos on your way round.

It was great to see a variety of ages getting involved in the run! There were adults, kids and even babies being pushed along in there pushchairs (they were having a great time). We even noticed some tourists were taking part in the run and had travelled all the way from Iceland - Amazing!!

We had a great time and loved every minute of it, we will definitely be going back for more!

Keep exploring
