Moreover, they share our passion for the everyday athlete and desire to grow engagement with grassroots running and sports activity for all ages."
"Tribesports is dedicated to championing grassroots heroes," said Tribesports CEO and endurance runner, Steve Reid. "Teaming up with parkrun to reward each runner who reaches a significant milestone with free quality performance wear beats the hell out of astronomical spend on pro sponsorship for us, every time."
Tribesports and parkrun have also announced that for the first time a volunteer t-shirt will be made available not just to those qualifying in the future, but also to any qualifying volunteer who has earned one in the last ten years. Steve Reid said: "The parkrun movement couldn't exist without the volunteer teams that labour tirelessly week in week out. These are the people that keep people in their local communities moving, and they deserve to be rewarded and celebrated."
