The Weston junior parkrun is open once a month and runners are encouraged to bring along a friend.
Weston junior parkrun hopes to inspire more children to come along and attend the event on Sunday mornings.
Once a month, children who already take part in parkrun will be encouraged to bring along a friend who have never ran before.
Parkrun organsiers at Weston want to be more proactive in encouraging new runners to parkrun. Now the new term has begun it is an ideal time to promote this idea. Some friends may even want to run together or offer their friend a lift to the event.
An added bonus is that those who inspire others can apply for a Blue Peter Sports Badge award (go to the BBC website for more information).
