Parkrun UK is a truly brilliant initiative; they organize free, timed 5K races that take place every week in various parks around the city. Everyone is encouraged to take part, regardless of your ability level and it really does push you to take your running to the next stage as you begin to compete both against the clock and other people in the race. From Alexandra Palace or Hackney Downs to Richmond park, there is bound to be a Parkrun near you and in fact it is a fun way to explore other areas of the city that you might not usually visit whilst also keeping fit.
