Your parkrun calendar – July

Good morning parkrunners - what a fabulous weekend again. We’ve a couple of notices for your parkrun calendar.

Saturday July 7th we welcome the boys from Oakley Vale Football Club

Oakley Vale Football club is a local community Football club based in Corby.

A Development Club giving children the opportunity to play in a fun and safe environment.

They currently train on the pitch behind Harpers brook on the Oakley Vale area in Corby. They’re being sponsored by friends and family to raise funds for a changing facility within the Oakley Vale Community Centre grounds to enable the Club to play the weekly fixtures on the pitches adjacent to Harpers Brook. There are 12 of the boys running with their parents and they’ll be wearing their team kit – so give them lots of support as they go round.

10% of what they raise will be donated to Corby parkrun funds – thank you boys.

Sharing a Sausage & Cider

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SATURDAY 30th June..

So this Saturday we share West Glebe Park with Corby' 1st Sausage & Cider Festival - how exciting

We've a site plan and as long as everyone sticks to the plan we'll be absolutely fine. The site boundary needs to be a minium of 20ft from tje back path and the tree line. I'm planning to visit the park on Friday afternoon to check this is so

It's likely that we'll extend the finish along the path, rather than come onto the grass but we'll make that decision Friday/ Saturday morning.

Part of the site agreement is that all vehicles need to be off site by 8.30. If you get to parkrun earlier for a warm up please be aware of any vehicles exiting the park.

I've agreed with the Conservative Club that parkrunners can once again use the small carpark there. If we need extra spaces, ive permission to open the gate to the football pitches - please park along the hedge row and not on the pitches.

I suspect that vendors will be keen to sell post parkrun fund - who knows you might get a discount if you bring your barcode.

Below is the site map.

Any questions please post below or email corbyoffice@parkrun.com
