Parkrun information board offers help for would-be runners at Scone and Devon Park




A new information board has been unveiled in the hope of encouraging more people to take up running.

The board, on Sconce and Devon Park, Newark, was paid for by money raised from Newark Half-marathon.

Brian Thompson, a Newark Half-marathon committee member, said: “The old Newark half came to an end and parkrun did its bit to help bring it back. It was the running clubs of Newark mingling at parkrun when it first started in Newark in 2013 that helped to break down barriers between them.

“From there, discussions were started, a committee was formed and the half was brought back to life.

“The information board allows park visitors to know the events taking place at the weekends and identifies the routes in case they wanted to run them outside of the official weekly times.”
