5km run suitable for beginners held in Princes Park, Toxteth.
The route is on paths, although some sections of the course do accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.
Starting in the middle of the park, run down towards the bottom of the lake, around the outside of the lake and up to the top of the park, run 3 laps of the park perimeter anti-clockwise.
On the third lap cut back into the middle of the park for a fast finish. The park is completely enclosed and is quiet early on.
- Please arrive by foot, by pedal-power or by public transport if you can – your efforts help to reduce our impact on the park and the planet.
- Please consider volunteering to help occasionally – this event survives only because of your generosity. Tasks may be organising the finish funnel, operating the timer, or scanning the runners’ barcodes with our simple barcode readers.
- Please ensure that you are fit enough to walk, jog, run 5k (3.1 miles) with us.
- Please remember that the parkrun uses shared paths. For the continued success of the event, please give way to other park users. This won’t hurt your time, it won’t stop you from getting a Personal Best and it will make sure everyone continues to enjoy
You don’t have to be fast. We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace.
- How can I access this service?
- Please register before your first run by going to the website and follow the instructions. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode. We meet in the middle of the park, south of the lake
