The first few weeks of the run has seen over 60 children taking part and enjoying themselves, so why not sign up your child and get involved?

To register your child simply log on to: www.parkrun.org.uk/lurgan-juniors then meet at the Cricket Pavilion in Lurgan Park on Sunday mornings.

The Junior parkrun is organised by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, the Public Health Agency and St Peter’s Athletic Club.
