parkrun Tourism Around the World

Read time - 2 minutes

Take your parkrunning to the next level and become the ultimate parkrun tourist!

Plenty of parkrunners are already part of the parkrun tourism movement, trying out different parkruns around the UK, but we want to make it easy for you to experience them abroad too.

From the humble beginnings in west London, parkun UK has now expanded to offer weekly 5kms all over the globe. Since we joined up with parkrun last summer, you’ve been asking us if you can combine a parkrun with one of our holidays… and the answer is a resounding yes!

Here are a few of our trips where you can keep your parkrun record intact whilst exploring some of the world’s most beautiful places.

Florence parkrun

Tuscany’s sun-drenched capital is one of the most visited cities in Italy and the crown jewel of the Renaissance. Plenty of our travellers choose to spend extra time in this city at the start or end of their trips, and it is home to one of the most cultured parkruns around.

We can arrange for you to fly in a few days early, so you can explore the city, its innumerable museums and galleries before taking part in the local parkrun on Saturday morning. Plus, we challenge you to find a better spot to enjoy a celebratory gelato afterwards! Florence is the springboard for many of our Italy holidays, like Walking in Tuscany.

Krakow parkrun

With its gorgeous medieval centre and a fascinating history, Krakow trips offer a great eastern European getaway. If walking along ancient cobbled streets and climbing old bell towers for views over the city wasn’t enough, then you can join the Krakow parkrun and keep your Saturday morning routine.

On our Trek the Polish High Tatras trip you can join this run on departure before heading back to London. That’s what we call knocking it out the park!

Swakopmund parkrun

Is this the ultimate parkrun for bragging rights?! Swakopmund is known as the place for adventure activities like sandboarding or quad biking, but this is also where you can still do your Saturday morning 5k in the morning before jumping on a sandboard!

Join our Cycle Namibia trip for a chance to tick this off your parkrun bucket list.

These are just three parkruns you can join when booking an Exodus holiday. With more parkruns around the world, there are many options to combine your Saturday morning run with a holiday. This is also a great excuse to fly out early to extend your holiday and take in even more from your well-earned break.

Keep your eyes peeled for a special parkrun holiday in Sicily that we will be announcing very shortly…

Remember to quote PARKRUN19 when booking one of our holidays for £100 off any of our trips! You can also still enter our competition to win a spot on one of our trips.
