A free weekly timed run is coming to Stevenage, and organisers are appealing for volunteers and runners to get involved.

Gordon Cowan decided to bring Parkrun to the town after seeing its benefits when taking part in another course with his children.

The 46-year-old said: “It is all about bringing the community together and encouraging everyone to exercise.” Gordon is planning on holding the first run around Fairlands Valley Park in November. He is looking for marshals, timers and other volunteers to help run the event. For more email parkrun.stevenage@gmail.com.
