6. Leisure activities

There are a number of sporting activities supported by us that are run throughout the year.

Gravesend Junior Parkrun

Gordon Promenade, Commercial Place, Gravesend DA12 2BT

Ages 4 to 14

Every Sunday 9.30am

Junior Parkrun is a free weekly 2km run taking place around the Riverside Leisure Area, organised by volunteers for the benefit of everyone.

The runs are timed so participants can challenge themselves each week against their own time or just participate for fun.

Taking part is free but participants must register before their first run. Once registered, runners will receive a barcode which you need to print and bring to the run.

For more information visit the Parkrun website.
