parkrun is a free, timed, 5km event that happens every Saturday morning in over 720 places all over the UK. As a Vitality member, you earn points every time you walk, jog, run or volunteer. Just register on the parkrun website, print your barcode and you're good to go. 

Vitality points are available for parkrun on all VitalityHealth, Vitality at Work and VitalityLife plans.

Frequently asked questions

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

How do I find my nearest parkrun?

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 8 activity points each time you run, which count towards Active Rewards1

If you volunteer at parkrun, you'll earn 5 points. Volunteering at parkrun is not part of the Active Rewards scheme.

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.

1 If your plan is eligible for Active Rewards.

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.

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 activity points per day up to 40 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 parkrun are two exceptions. You'll earn points for these alongside exercise.  

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.
