Park life: What is parkrun and why is it so popular?
In this episode of the Research Reimagined podcast, we’re joined by Dr David Hindley, Principal Lecturer in the School of Science and Technology at Nottingham Trent University, to unpack how parkrun became a worldwide phenomenon spanning 5 continents, 22 countries and over 2,000 locations.
In his book, parkrun: An Organised Running Revolution, David draws on new research to shine a light on parkrun’s success and unpack what makes this free, weekly activity such a popular community event. In this episode, David talks to Helen about some of the themes that are included in his book, such as inclusivity, community and health.
To us, research is about more than writing papers and proposing new ideas. By daring to think differently, we’re disrupting the research landscape and finding the answers to the questions that really matter. From social media addiction to sustainable farming, we’re inspiring the brightest minds to rise up and find solutions to some of the most significant global challenges facing society.
