Frequently asked questions

Here are a few of the questions we’ve answered for our members

How do I find my nearest parkun?

For your nearest event, check the parkrun website.

How do I register?

Go to the parkrun website to register and follow the prompts to set up a new profile. You'll need your Vitality membership number. Then click on the link in your confirmation email and enter your Vitality membership number to link your parkrun profile to Vitality. Don’t forget to print your personal barcode as you’ll need to scan this every time you run to get Vitality points. If you're an existing parkrunner, you'll need to edit your profile using the link provided in your weekly email, rather than setting up a new one.

How many Vitality points can I earn for parkrun?

You’ll earn eight activity points each time you run which count towards Active Rewards if your plan is eligible for Active Rewards. Volunteering at a parkrun is not part of the Active Rewards scheme, so if you volunteer at a parkrun you can earn 5 points that don’t count towards your Active Rewards, in addition to your 8 activity points for taking part in a parkrun that do count towards it. You're able to earn 40 points a week for getting active so if you've already reached your weekly points limit and you complete a parkrun, you won't receive any points for that run.

If I take part in a parkrun and track my activity with a fitness device or mobile app will I earn Vitality points for both?

No, you can earn a maximum of 8 Vitality activity points per day and up to 40 Vitality activity points per week. We’ll award points for only one exercise activity per day, so if you do more than one activity in a day you’ll receive points for the one which earns the most. Visiting a Vitality partner gym and volunteering at a parkrun are two different exceptions which you can do in addition to exercise. If your plan is eligible for Active Rewards, then points for attending a Vitality partner gym will count towards Active Rewards, so you could earn 5 Vitality activity points for attending a Vitality partner gym and then 3 activity points for tracking another activity, such as running on the treadmill to get your 8 activity points for the day that count towards your Active Rewards. Volunteering at a parkrun is not part of the Active Rewards scheme, so if you volunteer at a parkrun you can earn 5 points that don’t count towards your Active Rewards, in addition to your 8 Vitality activity points for taking part in a parkrun that do count towards it. 

How do I volunteer?

Ask your local events team directly - the easiest way is to have a chat with them at the run. Alternatively, every event has a volunteering page with information on how to get involved and get in touch.

Where can I find my results?

parkrun emails all runners their results whenever they run. If your email doesn’t arrive, check your spam/junk folder first. Every runner also has a permanent results page on the parkrun website which provides a complete history of all their runs.
