PLANS for a Junior Parkrun in Page Park, Staple Hill, have had the thumbs up from both residents and the Friends' group.

PLANS for a Junior Parkrun in Page Park, Staple Hill, have had the thumbs up from both residents and the Friends' group.

The proposed course would start at the Clocktower and head towards the perimeter at South View. Children would then run two loops and return up the main central avenue for the finish.

The scheme would form part of parkrun UK, an international voluntary network which works with communities to organise weekly parkruns in open spaces across the UK. If given the go-ahead the free 2km parkrun would take place each Sunday at 9am and would be open to all children aged four to 14 and their parents or carers.

There are already junior parkruns at Little Stoke, Windmill Hill and Kingsweston House, with another planned for Eastville Park.
