VAC “mob match” parkruns 

We combine VAC get-togethers with selected parkruns, three or four times a year. Many VAC members are regular parkrunners, who enjoy an early start on Saturday mornings and the conviviality and informality of the weekly runs in all sorts of locations, whilst benefiting from free entry and a measured 5k course. All ages and abilities are represented at these timed runs. The VAC targeted parkruns are an opportunity for VAC’s first and second claim runners to meet up, run and chat afterwards. We hope to see a good show of VAC vests so we can cheer each other on and raise the profile of the club. If members have recommendations or favourites in and around the London area, with good links to public transport, please make suggestions to Maggie Statham, the Entries Secretary. 

If you are new to parkruns, you must register in advance on the parkrun website and obtain your individual barcode, which must be shown at the end of the run in order to register your name and time. Entry is free. You do not need to pin on a run-number. Just turn up, line up at 9am, run, take a numbered disc when you finish and then take the disc and your barcode to the recorders at their table. Your time, position, age category and age grading will appear on the parkrun website later in the day. If you are already registered with parkrun, there is no need to change your club affiliation to VAC for the purposes of these “mob matches”. We can usually pick out the VAC members.
