Exercise - could a parkrun be launched in town?

Exercise - could a parkrun be launched in town?

When I was in Hucknall last week, I was saddened to see the Annie Holgate athletics track just a weed-ridden piece of land – the state would indicate it has been like that for a good few years, I suppose. You would think that local authorities and education authorities would recognise the value of such facilities for not only the physical activity/sports benefits, but the public health benefits that they could provide – if managed properly. They just do not seem to understand, or just ignore, the role of encouraging everyone to take healthy levels of ‘aerobic’ physical activity, and the positive impact that has on virtually every aspect of health. It’s just preventative medicine in action!
