Mansfield parkrun, a weekly 5K at North Lake Park, is held even in snowy weather. 

MANSFIELD -- Mansfield parkrun, a free, timed 5K held weekly at North Lake Park, will be celebrating its third anniversary on Saturday, Jan. 18. 

The global mission of parkrun is to build healthy communities by establishing free and inclusive opportunities for weekly physical activity.

"But parkrun is so much more than just exercise," stated Karyl Price, Co-Event Director of Mansfield parkrun. "It is very much about community: bringing together those of diverse backgrounds and abilities into one fun and active event. It is entirely volunteer-led, relying on so many people to jump in and take on all the tasks that make this event happen every single week."
