Paul Sinton-Hewitt CBE, founder of parkrun is awarded the 2019 RSA Albert Medal for building a global participation movement.

Paul’s mission and that of parkrun is to make the world a healthier and happier place; achieved through the interventions of the thousands of volunteers in thousands of communities across the world.  

In his Albert Medal address, Paul will discuss the parkrun initiative as a social movement for the common good, taking the audience on a journey of the whys and hows of its evolution to become the largest running community in the world. He will examine the core values of the movement and reveal his understanding of how it has achieved that success. 
The RSA Albert Medal is awarded annually for innovation in the fields of creativity, commerce and social improvement.
