Parkrun in prison.

Post by Burtonboy » Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:29 pm

So apparently there is a new park run starting tomorrow in the grounds of HMP Haverigg, it’s only for staff and inmates obviously but they hope to allow family’s participate once a year as well.

Just wondered what people’s views are on this?

Im not through the door yet, but exercise and healthy competition can only be a winner. it gives everyone something to look forward too.

Make the prisoners do an extra lap tire them out they will all hopefully be too tired to misbehave :slyay:

Had to google it to see exactly what it was all about.. 'These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings'
I'm jealous that HMP haverigg has its own park! :slwh:
Will be embarrassing though when all the prisoners outrun the officers haha

It sounds a good idea to me.

Think John McAvoy...
