Activities For Kids
The best way to get into a new fun and exciting sport is to contact a local sports club. They offer specialised coaching to deliver sessions to all levels of ability and all ages. For a list of the sports clubs in the Harborough District please visit our Sports Clubs page, or search for your nearest clubs using Leicestershire & Rutland Sport's Get Active app.
Junior parkrun is an event for ages 4 - 14 years old. Parents are welcome to run with their children as long as they don't enter the finish funnel - only children receive a finish time.
It takes place in Welland Park every Sunday from 9am and the course is 2km in length.
Head towards the childrens play park and you will spot the volunteer team setting up the event from 08:30am.
Children are welcome to run or walk the route - there is no time pressure and all abilities are welcome.
The Café in Welland Park opens at 9am on Sundays so you can grab a bite to eat afterwards.
There is free car parking in the area on a Sunday so please use any of the local car parks.
Be sure to register first and print off your barcode. No barcode, no result!
Children participate in fun and interactive games and are also allowed to have a go on the outside equipment at Fleckney Sports Centre. The children will be given information about the importance of eating a healthy and balanced diet and at the end of each session are given a piece of fruit or veg to try.
