GP Practices Take Over Parkrun

It was parkrun-RCGP 'pledge day' on 1st June where GP practice staff 'took over' their local parkrun by attending with their patients, with the ultimate aim being to get GP practices to sign up to become 'parkrun Practices' with a formal linkup to their local parkrun.

The day itself was a great success, with more than 5,000 general practice doctors, staff and patients pledging their support in advance, and 182,000 participants at UK 5k parkruns on 1st June. You can read their blog, including case studies here.
