About Us

Brierley Forest parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Brierley Forest, Skegby Road, Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire, NG17 2PL. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in the Brierley Forest Visitors Centre, Skegby Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, NG17 2PL - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.

85% of the funds you donate will go towards improving your parkrun and the remaining 15% will be deposited in the parkrun "NEW EVENTS" fund. Your donation could be used for the anniversary event, the annual prize giving, replacing worn equipment or for improving your parkrun.

If this event is raising money towards a defibrillator, then the 15% will be added back in when fundraising is complete.

parkrun is completely open about all donations. All donations to this event (and withdrawals that the event teams makes) will be published below. You can also view all donations in this country here
