Welcome to our running group

About our group

Did you know there is a parkrun course on campus? Parkrun is a weekly FREE timed 5K run on Saturdays at 9am. The Colney Lane parkrun is on UEA’s campus and offers a scenic off-road route. Parkruns are for everyone- from complete beginners to more experienced runners. You can walk, jog or run round the course. The main objective is to be active and have fun. You can find out more information about the Colney Lane Parkrun here: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/colneylane/ 


If you’ve never done a parkrun before, why not join our group event? On Saturday 23rd February Zoe Jones, a keen runner, from the Student Support Centre will meet anyone wishing to try parkrun for the first time. Zoe will meet UEA students or staff who want to give Parkrun a try at the Sports Pavillion, where the parkrun starts, at 8:30am. She will lead a gentle warm up, before accompanying runners to the start line. Zoe will stay with participants and encourage them round. Expect lots of encouragement from the lovely parkrun volunteers too. Once everyone has made it across the finish line, Zoe will lead a cool down and stretches, before a well earned hot drink and biscuit to celebrate your first parkrun.  To record your time you will need to register with the Parkrun website first and print out a personalised barcode: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/
