The weekly 5k Parkrun is now a firm favourite of UK runners. Every Saturday at 9am, runners of all abilities join thousands of others to celebrate the love of group running.
At the Electric Bikes Kent Maidstone base, a Parkrun has been 'running' for a few years, and it's a pleasure to be able to cheer everyone at the start and applaud the finishers.
It would be great to 'electric bike' alongside the runners like those motorbikes on the London Marathon, but as the course runs along the riverside path and is a bottleneck at the beginning, we've decided against it as it might get messy! We'll stick to clapping them on.
