INMATES at Haverigg's prison are set to become the first in the UK to take part in a weekly parkrun event.Prisoners are set to participate in weekly parkrun events for the first time from this Saturday thanks to a pioneering initiative between parkrun UK and HMP Haverigg, a Category C prison in Cumbria that has 286 prisoners.Parkrun UK, a non-profit organisation that supports 670 communities across the country to co-ordinate free, volunteer-led 5k and 2k events for walkers and runners, was approached by the prison earlier this year.
