Join Llangollen Parkrun as it marks NHS's 75th birthday

Llangollen's first Parkrun on June 17 had 249 people attending.

According to organisers, this figure was boosted by what are known as "Parkrun tourists" - people from all over the UK who like to attend a first run. 

On its second week  the run attracted 181 participants and last week 160 settling down for more local people.

A spokesperson said: "This week we are also celebrating the 75th anniversary of the NHS and our run director on the day is Janet Knight, who local people will know is a senior partner at the GP Practice at Llangollen Health Centre, supported by some of her colleagues from the practice which is actually an official Parkrun practice, to encourage people to volunteer, walk, jog or run at our event."

* Parkrun is now a regular weekly event, starting at 9am every Saturday, in which people can volunteer, walk, jog or run to improve their health and wellbeing, please see: home | Old Railway Trail parkrun, Llangollen | Old Railway Trail parkrun, Llangollen
