As we approach the summer term, now is the ideal time to dig out your trainers and enjoy the great outdoors as part of the Mount School parkrun Team.
A welcome addition to the PE calendar, this exciting opportunity welcomes students, parents, guardians and staff to join forces and take part in the York Knavesmire parkrun as a collective. Supported by our friendly School community, all abilities are welcome to participate in this free event where you can run, jog or walk 5 kilometres.
The Mount School parkrun team will gather at school on the first Saturday of each month this term, before embarking on a short warm-up jog or brisk walk to the racecourse, ready for the 9am start line.
With locations all over the world, parkrun promises a positive, welcoming and inclusive event for everyone to experience. There is no time limit to complete, and no one finishes last.
The dates for this term will be 6th May, 3rd June and 1st July. Each event will be followed by celebratory Coffee and Cake at School for the perfect cool down treat.
If you are interested in taking part, please first please complete the expressions of interest form sent to parents by email.
Before taking part, you will be required to register with parkrun if you haven’t already done so. This will ensure that you have the barcode required to take part. You will only need to register once by following the link https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ this will also hopefully answer any questions you may have via the Parkrun FAQ section.
It would be great to see as many parents/students/staff as possible support this great event and represent The Mount School.
