Anyone can take part in the race, regardless of the level of training.
In the capital’s parks, the traditional Saturday races are being resumed as part of the Parkran movement (from the English park run). It will be possible to take part in them on the territory of 10 recreation areas starting from April 3. Jogging is organized in accordance with epidemiological safety requirements.
Parkran brings together people who run five kilometers in parks every week. They are held every Saturday at 09:00. Anyone can join, regardless of age and level of sports training. A prerequisite is only the observance of social distance and other safety measures. Thus, Muscovites and guests of the capital are asked to refrain from jogging at the slightest sign of a cold.
Parkran events are not classic running marathons. Speed is not important, the main goal is to get a boost of vivacity and improve health. Participants can run, or they can simply walk the distance at a comfortable pace for themselves with a regular walk or armed with Nordic walking sticks. It all depends on the level of training.
In order to take part in the training, you must come on Saturday at 09:00 to one of the declared sites. The volunteers of the project will meet the audience there.
Starting from April 3rd, the races will be held in the following recreation areas:
– Park “Angarsk Ponds”;
– Babushkinsky Park;
– Park of Friendship;
– Museum-reserve “Kolomenskoye”;
– Kuzminki park;
– landscape park “Mitino”;
– Park “North Tushino”;
– Sokolniki park”;
– Fili park;
– Museum-reserve “Tsaritsyno”.
Also, the participants in the races can track their results. To do this, you need to register once in the Parkran project and get an individual number. You can read more about registration at official website.
The Parkrun movement began in the UK in 2004 and quickly became international, reaching 22 countries. In Moscow, more than two dozen parks and recreation areas have joined the project. The first runs were held in 2014 in the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve and the Severnoye Tushino Park.
