The impact of parkrun on mental health

It’s not hard to guess which example I use for activities with a positive impact on mental health.

❝ The impact of parkrun on mental health extends far beyond physical activity and has the potential to support people outside of traditional mental health services, according to new research conducted by Staffordshire University. ❞

❝ Independent survey commissioned by UK-based charity parkrun gets more than 60,000 responses and shows that volunteering has a bigger impact on health and wellbeing than just running or walking. ❞
