A new Parkrun has been confirmed in Newark at Sconce and Devon Park. The first event for this free weekly 5k run will be 1st June (to be confirmed), 9am, and then every Saturday morning at 9am. This will be the nearest Parkrun to Lincoln, and hopefully will increase the pressure on local authorities to allow a Parkrun in Lincoln. You can support the Facebook campaign to get a Parkrun in Lincoln here.
