Maidstone parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9am from Kent Life.

It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that’s for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy Maidstone River Park and get physically active into the bargain.

This event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week runners grab a post parkrun coffee in Dotty’s Tea Room at Kent Life. Swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this running community.
