We recently published our new global five year strategy that sets out the direction for the future.

Mission Statement

At parkrun we believe that mission statements are really important, and that if you live by them every single day they are an extremely powerful tool for supporting your dreams. Many years of experience have shown us that parkrun events have the power to change lives in ways that we could never have imagined, and on a daily basis people write to us with incredible stories of personal fulfilment and transformation. We believe that parkrun can change the world for the better.

Our mission statement:

To transform health & happiness by empowering people to come together, to be active, social & outdoors.

It is important to us that everyone is able to benefit from engaging with parkrun events. A key part of that is ensuring they are free to enter. We also believe that it will take decades to see the true benefit of parkrun, and that despite our already significant impact on the world, we have only just begun. We therefore include the following alongside our mission statement:

Free, for everyone, forever.
