Saturday Mornings - Parkrun. A lot of Didsbury Runners regularly attend Parkrun at various parks around Manchester. Parkruns are free 5k events that take place every Saturday at 9am. They're friendly and inclusive and are a great way to meet other members of the club. You need to register here ( before your first run so you can get a barcode and then all you do is turn up with your barcode each time you go to an event. People usually post which Parkrun they're going to before the weekend so keep an eye out on facebook for this. If you'd like to give it a go but are not sure how it works or if you have any questions, please ask. You've probably realised by now that we love Parkrun so will be more than happy to talk about it!

Thu 6th July, Thu 20th July, Thu 3rd August, Thu 20th August - Sale Sizzlers. A series of 5k races at Wythenshawe Park. These are suitable for beginners/improvers so have a look at the website and please ask if you'd like to give one of these a try.
