parkrun is a weekly 5K timed course for walking, jogging or running. It takes place in the heart of Scunthorpe at Central Park every Saturday morning, starting at 9am, meeting near The Pods.
The event is organised and managed entirely by volunteers.
It is free to take part in parkrun; you just need to make sure you register on the parkrun website, before you run, to record a time. When you have registered you will be able to print out a barcode which you will need to bring along to every run with you. A barcode timing system is used at the events to record your time. This software means that participants can have their results provided almost instantly, either on the parkrun website or by text message.

Come and join our Scunthorpe VX Club that takes places at The Pods every Saturday from 5pm – 6pm.
VX is a mixed sport – males and females compete on an equal footing. It’s an inclusive sport – players of all abilities and many disabilities can compete. It helps drive participation, especially among the less sporty, but on the other hand, for the more advanced players there is a route right through to international representation.
We welcome players aged 7 years and above and of all abilities, no prior knowledge is required.
The cost is £2.50 per session with the first session being free.
All of our coaches are fully qualified VX coaches and are DBS checked with a wealth of experience working with children and young adults in sports.
