Some of our awesome volunteers!

With a usual start of 9am, we will be bringing you Basildon parkrun lite on Christmas Day!

This means we will have minimal signs and minimal volunteers. We still have Timekeepers, Barcode Scanners and Finish Tokens - if you can help please let us know, however many roles are being covered by the core team to enable you to run at your leisure :), and of course, if you really want to marshal you can. We have Tail Walkers already in place to ensure no-one's left out on the course and so we know when the event has finished. First timers welcome, we love our Christmas tourists too. You can always run with someone else that knows the route but it should be clear enough.

The Northlands café will be closed, therefore results will be processed in the warmth of our own homes and posted later in the day, or even the next day. The toilets will also be closed. Please continue to park considerately as we do not want to impact the Watermill's Christmas business, first right section only if you are parking there.

Well done parkrunners!
Well done parkrunners!

Merry Christmas everyone, and #dfyb!

Upcoming Events:

Monday 25th December (Christmas Day) Basildon parkrun Christmas Day parkrun
Tuesday 26th December (Boxing Day) Crown to Crown
Monday 1st January (New Years Day) Southend parkrun

Please have a look at our Local Events page for other future events.
