"We really enjoy hosting this run for the community and we hope it continues to grow and become part of more peoples routine in Wilmslow.

"Our volunteers make an effort week in week out in order to ensure that runners have a safe and enjoyable event. They are passionate about making Wilmslow parkrun a great place to run for people of all age and ability."
