About the project

Bodmin Junior parkrun

A FREE 2K run for 4-14 year olds, every Sunday at 9am, in the heart of Bodmin.

Bodmin wants to bring a Junior parkrun to the start of the Camel Trail, in the heart of Bodmin, so that our 4-14 year olds have the opportunity to run 2K every Sunday, in a supportive, safe and friendly environment.

To do this we need to raise £3000 to get the event started... and more importantly, we need volunteers.  Junior parkrun is totally organised by volunteers.  There's no minimum time commitment and all the roles are really easy to do.  Please visit the Junior parkrun website to find out more, and get in touch with [email protected] if you're able to help.  Thank you!

Volunteering impact


Junior parkrun is for children aged 4 -14 years. We imagine we will have 30 runners each week after 6 weeks, and numbers will grow week on week. Junior parkrun will be great for the kids of Bodmin, and will also encourage their families to be active. The event will also bring in visitors which will support local businesses.
