A weekly, free 5km run around a park? Are you sure? What?
Just sign up at the parkrun website, print off your barcode, turn up at your local run and off you go.
I started my parkrun adventures on the 21st March 2015, at Horsham parkrun, after completing 8 weeks of the NHS Couch to 5k plan. Since then, I've made some good friends, found a fiancée (we ignored each other at Kingston parkrun on NYD 2016), got fitter, lost weight and at times, I still enjoy running.
Current parkrun goals:

Running around a park, it'll never catch on.
Now into my third year of running around a park, I must admit, it is quite addictive.
