Parkrun practice

Market Harborough Medical Centre is delighted to have linked up with Market Harborough Parkrun to become a ‘Parkrun Practice’.

Parkruns are free nationwide events, taking place every Saturday morning, which revolve around completing a 5km route in open spaces. Many choose to run but others push buggies, walk their dogs or amble round while chatting with friends. They are run entirely by volunteers, which makes them a supportive and friendly environment to get out and feel good about yourself.

If you want to be competitive then by registering you receive a barcode that records your time and how many runs you have attended, which can also be a great motivator.

By becoming a Parkrun Practice we intend to practice what we preach (with members of staff also joining in), as well as promoting the events through posters and in consultations as a really important way you can take control of improving your own physical and mental health.
