Burn Brae Medical Group is delighted to collaborate with Tyne Green Parkrun and become an official ‘Parkrun practice’. We hope that many of our patients alongside our staff will get involved with this fantastic weekly event - whether you run, jog, walk, push a buggy or help to marshal.
The event is held every Saturday at 9am at Tyne Green in Hexham. If you optionally sign up online you will be able to print off a barcode to log your time and track your progress.
People who exercise regularly have a lower risk of developing many long-term health conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis and some cancers.
Research shows that physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy levels, and reduce your risk of stress, depression and dementia.
If exercise were a pill, we would prescribe it to all our patients!
To stay healthy, adults should try to be active every day and aim to achieve at least 150 minutes of physical activity over a week through a variety of activities.
Parkrun can help you achieve that goal - it is free, outdoors, on our doorstep, friendly and open to everyone of all ages and abilities- so why not go along and give it a try!
