Christmas Day parkrun

Ayr parkrun will host a Christmas Day parkrun at 9.30am on 25th December! Please come along and join us for festive fun!

There will not be a New Year’s Day parkrun at Ayr this year.


Dogs at Ayr parkrun

Ayr parkrun is a twisty and loopy route. Having reviewed the route safety regarding an incident last weekend, we are requesting the following :

• A parkrun line can be used as long as it is held at the twist throughout the run. This is compulsory due to technical nature of the course.

• ALL runners, run on left hand side when running with or without a dog.

•Announce to runners ahead that you are going to overtake if running with your dog.

•Provide a wide berth around runner as safely as possible.

• And finally, enjoy your parkrun !

To celebrate 10 years of parkrun in Scotland why not do the 10 for 10 challenge?

So what do you need to do?

- Run/jog/walk/volunteer at 10 different Scottish parkruns ( 5k&2k) before1 December 2018
- For those whose home parkrun is in the north (Inverness, Elgin, Alness, Aviemore) each parkrun can be repeated once.
- For those whose home parkrun is Bressay all 10 can be done at Bressay
