Parkrun is an organisation that co-ordinates free, weekly, timed 5k running routes, and has taken the UK by storm. The events are open to all ages and all abilities, and entirely organised by volunteers. This is your chance to meet the man behind it all.
Paul Sinton-Hewitt is the inspiration behind parkrun; arguably the most successful, free to participate, sports development initiative of all time that has changed the lives of thousands for the better. In 2014 he was awarded the CBE for services to Grassroots Sport Participation.
He will be delivering a guest lecture on the conception and evolution of Parkrun and his own personal journey.
Join us in welcoming him to Solent University.
