Want to get fit?
Perhaps you’re looking for a new hobby.
Maybe you’d just like to get out and enjoy Nene Park.
Whatever your motivation, Park Run in Ferry Meadows is a fantastic way to kick off your weekend on the front foot – and all participants get 10% off at Ferry Meadows Café!
Park Run Rundown
Park Run is a 5km run that takes place every single Saturday at 9am in Ferry Meadows. The fully tarmacked route starts and finishes just outside our very own Ferry Meadows Café, taking you along a scenic route past trees, fields and lakes.
The event is completely free and open to everyone of all levels of ability and experience – although under-11s must be accompanied by an adult. The atmosphere is invariably very friendly and fun so there is no pressure to race. Whether you want to run, walk or jog, it’s just you against the clock.
Of course, if you do want to test yourself against the other competitors that’s completely up to you too. Results are broken down into age and gender categories so you can compare yourself against similar runners. To make sure you get a time, you must register beforehand.
Volunteering at Park Run
The Park Run route is sign posted and attended by marshals, who help to coordinate the run and encourage participants.
Marshals, as well as all other event organisers, are volunteers who kindly give up their time so that the run can take place. It’s an extremely important role and Park Run in Peterborough is always looking for new volunteers – if you’re interested, you can find out more here.
Once the Race Is Run
Ferry Meadows Café is a popular haunt once runners have finished. Our cosy café couldn’t be any more conveniently located and all runners get 10% off food and drink – so please come and join us.
