Eyemouth Primary Playing Fields junior parkrun

This is a community-lead event that provides a weekly safe, friendly and fun way for 4 - 14 year olds to exercise outdoors over a 2km distance. The organisation parkrun is global, with adult 5km routes in addition to the junior events throughout the world.
