'parkrun' organises free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world.
They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. They're friendly events organised by fantastic local volunteers.
These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings just like ours. People of all abilities take part; from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians; from juniors to those with more experience.
Blickling's parkrun runs every Saturday at 9am. Please check the parkrun website for details.

The Great Wood is a great place for den-building. Check out the pyramid mausoleum too!

Blickling Estate is often the venue for 'Fit Together' health walks, run by Active Norfolk.
Walking is a great way to find out more about the area you live in and to meet new people, as well as experiencing the obvious health benefits. There is a level to suit everyone, from beginners to more experienced walkers and walks often begin at a location where you can have refreshments and a chat after the walk.
Visit the Active Norfolk website for more information about dates and locations. Walks are free.
