The organisers want to welcome everyone. Three parkruns in Shropshire are especially inviting people with learning disability to join in and get a taste for this sporting and social activity on these Saturdays this summer.

Participants in parkrun can register and print out a barcode in advance via the website www.parkrun.org.uk if they want to find out the time they take to finish the run. Participants should bring along the barcode of the day.
