PICTURES: Doctors take on Parkrun to encourage patients to get in shape

Leamington Editorial 5th Jun, 2019   0

DOCTORS pulled on their running shoes to encourage others to join Leamington Parkrun.

Staff from practices across the district signed up to take part in the free event at Newbold Comyn.

People of all ages walked, jogged and ran around the park, and those who are less active or who have health conditions also took part in the 5km course.

Many also wore pink to raise awareness about breast cancer.




Now each of the 33 GP practices across Warwick and Leamington is linked with parkrun to encourage patients to get in shape.

Parkrun is free and takes place every Saturday at 9am.
