parkrun is simple. Just register online  print your barcode and just rock up and run! Actually, you don’t have to run at all if you don’t want to, especially on your first go. Why not walk it and simply lap up the atmosphere, observe what other people are doing and absorb the positive vibe that is present at every parkrun. Maybe next time try and jog bits of it, you’ll probably meet other people doing exactly what you’re doing and you’ll find moral support in your shared experience. You’ll also get lots of support from the lovely volunteers too.  parkrun is for everyone, including your dog if you have one! parkrun does have the speedsters at the front trying to break sixteen minutes but further back people are trying to get home in under an hour. Don't worry about where you will finish, they always have a tail walker at the back, no one is last. The winner isn't the first across the line, it's everyone who crosses the finish line! Everyone is just doing their own thing, the way they want to and that’s exactly how it should be. parkrun is running as it should be, it's for everyone!
