Can you step up a gear for Grangetown parkrun?

22 January 2016

By Courtney Taylor

The end of January is the time to put those New Year’s resolutions into real action – and the Grangetown parkrun could be just what you and your legs need.

parkrun is now a worldwide event organised at community level. Grangetown has been chosen for the second parkrun within Cardiff. 

The run around the Grangemoor Park area started towards the end of last year and gives Grangetown and Bay area residents the chance to take part in a 5km run – just you against the clock.

You don’t need to be fast, everyone runs for their own enjoyment so please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Runs take place every Saturday at 0900 in Grangemoor Park close to Asda and Ikea. More details can be found at

It costs nothing to join in – it’s free! But runners are asked to register before your first run and you only ever have to register once. Don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode. If you forget it, don’t worry, you can still run but you won’t get a recorded time. 

Grangemoor parkrun is entirely organised by volunteers from the community. You don’t need to be a runner to join us. So if you’re interested please email You can also follow @grangemrparkrun on Twitter

Volunteers are encouraged to register as well as your support will be recognised. Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Ikea Cardiff, so please come and join us.
