After high school Brenda had a 15-year break where she “didn’t do anything”, then when she got around to getting active again, she did it by walking first, then running eventually. 

Now Brenda loves the supportive Parkrun community and says it doesn’t matter how fast you walk or run, how much you jiggle, how grey your hair is or how daggy your clothes are – “there’s no judgement”.

“Everyone’s in the same boat, even though some people do it way faster than others, there’s also people who walk or run slowly – it’s a really level playing field, I love it!”
