Our sponsors and supporters are our lifeblood
At parkrun we work very closely and in partnership with our sponsors and supporters. Together we have been successful in developing a unique partnership where our partners secure the operational costs of parkrun allowing parkrun to operate a no cost to the runner model.
This unusual, innovative and inventive method of partnership is delivering unbelievable results in the community. Grassroots sport has never witnessed collaboration of this nature before.
The benefits to all parkrunners are that you get the running experience you want with a very light touch from our sponsors.
Discovery Vitality believes that every decision that a person makes to exercise and get active is a step in the right direction, whether you want to improve your 5km running time, or just enjoy the beautiful surroundings of each parkrun venue with your family. Living a healthy lifestyle can be rewarding, and Discovery Vitality members 18 years and older can earn 300 points for participating in a parkrun event. Children six years and older who are dependents on their parents' Discovery Vitality membership can now also earn points for completing a parkrun. Visit the Discovery website for more information.
