JUNIOR Parkrun is coming to Bideford.

The free-to-enter 2km event will give four to 14 year-olds the chance to run in Victoria Park every week, with times being recorded online to track progress.

Chair of the organising team and Torridge Parkrun event director David Skeet announced that the necessary funding and permissions to hold the races have been secured, and a presentation on Parkrun will be held on June 19 to encourage youngsters to run and others to volunteer.
