Killerton parkrun is every Saturday of the year, 9am start. There are no age restrictions and dogs on leads can run too. Print your barcode and bring with you.

Beginner run group

If you're new to running, join one of our running groups for beginners. Coaching is led by qualified instructors and follows the NHS programme that will progress you from mostly walking to running a distance of 5K at your own pace.

The Stables cafe is open after your run to refuel with coffee and cake.
