What’s On In Your CommunityC
Polkemmet parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:30am in Polkemmet Country Park, Whitburn, West Lothian, EH47 0AD at the bowling green. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that’s for fun or as part of a training plan.
It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!
Taking part is easy – All you need to do is visit https://www.parkrun.org.uk/polkemmetcountry/ to register to either run or volunteer . The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!
Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in a local café – please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.
So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own “running journey” or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.
