Birches Valley junior parkrun

Birches Valley junior parkrun takes place at Cannock Chase Forest, Birches Valley on a mixture of gravelled forest tracks/paths. The run takes place on the concert field just up passed Go Ape and participants and volunteers meet next to the Den Building area. 

junior parkrun is a series of 2k events for children aged between 4 and 14 that are held in areas of open space around the UK. They are open to all, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. The full junior parkrun code can be found here. If you are not a junior please then why not check out parkrun’s weekly Saturday parkrun events instead.

Registered parkrunners do not need to register separately for the junior events. However, if you are not already registered with parkrun you can do so here. Don’t forget to bring your barcode. No barcode equals no time!

Car parking charges do apply at Birches Valley junior parkrun. If you are planning on regularly attending Birches Valley junior parkrun why not look at our membership option which includes free car parking for a whole year and a range of other benefits. More information can be found here.

Birches Valley junior parkrun relies on volunteers to run each week. There are a number of different roles that you can do to support Birches Valley junior parkrun from helping set up the course, marshalling, time keeping to barcode scanning. If you would like to volunteer please email birchesvalleyjuniors@parkrun.com
