That this House expresses disappointment at the decision of Stoke Gifford Parish Council to begin charging Parkrun for use of its parks, becoming the first in the world to do so, effectively destroying the central ethos of Parkrun; notes that Parkrun is an organisation which provides a free, timed five kilometres event in public parks and on public paths with the help of volunteers at 850 locations in 12 countries around the world; further notes that in the UK there are 395 events on Saturday mornings attracting nearly one million runners, including people running with dogs and pushing prams; highlights the desperate need to attract those people into sport and exercise noting that many Parkrunners take this as a first step towards a healthier lifestyle; and calls on Stoke Gifford Parish Council to reconsider its shortsighted decision and that no other local authority will follow their example to begin charging for Parkrun events.
