After the Government announced their roadmap out of lockdown, Park Run announced it would begin slowly reopening its junior running events from April 11.

Since then, junior Park Run has returned successfully, with over 155 junior events in England either already open or with a planned start date over the coming weeks.

And children aged between four and 10 in Preston will be able to run the 2k distance when Avenham Park's run resumes this weekend.
