Park Run 2 May 2020

Are you interested in joining the Park Run and encouraging and organising nurses to take part on Saturday 2 May to celebrate International Year of the Nurse and Midwife?

We are created an editable Park Run Poster for you to use.

We are asking that you nominate someone from your practice to put their details on the bottom of this poster and promote the event within your practice or PCN. You will need to change the location details e.g. Christchurch Park, Felixstowe seafront, Gt Cornard etc. to the park where people in your team will be running.

We are asking for runner’s names and t-shirt sizes. Please can your organisation’s organiser collate the information and let Simon Morgan or Amanda Bennett know by the end of March: 

  • the location of your park run and 
  • the numbers you require; e.g. 30 x size small (10-12) 15 x size Medium (14-16) 20 x size large (16-18) 9 x extra-large (18 +)  so we can have an idea of how many and sizes of t-shirts to order.  

The organiser will then be issued with the t-shirts to hand out on the day at the Park or beforehand if it is easier.

By the way…if, like me you, or anyone in your team have read this and are sitting down thinking that there is no way that you could run 5KM…apparently it only takes 9 weeks of training from couch to 5KM, so you still have time!! Do it now for Nurses and Midwives!! For more help look at: www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/

Happy running and organising!

We are also keen to share the work that you are doing.  This template is for individuals or teams to complete to showcase the work that they are doing so we can publish local stories to celebrate the great work that nurses do. Please feel free to complete and return. Thank you.
