Our online network series is a chance for everyone working in the parks, leisure and recreation industry to come together to discuss things that are impacting your everyday work day and future work plans.

Our guest presenter this week will be Glen Turner from parkrun.

Glen is the Health and Wellbeing Lead for parkrun in Australia and New Zealand. He works with parkrun volunteer teams and a wide range of local and national stakeholders to ensure that parkrun events are as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.

  • The discussion will provide and overview of what parkrun is, where it is, how it engages local stakeholders in the establishment of events eg landowners and local funders such as councils
  • What have they done to adapt during COVID (eg (not)parkrun).

  • How the effect of COVID on the wider community is informing ideas for interventions when parkrun reopens

  • And how this is all shaping their strategy for growth
