Christmas and New Years day 2018

Well, we've not done one of these in a long time!!!

But this is a good one as we are having two extra junior parkruns over the festive period. As well as running on our usual Sundays we are also going to have juniors on Christmas Day and New Years Day so we would love anyone willing to volunteer to let us know as we still need a full compliment of high vis heroes :) Thanks everyone.


Event cancellations

Sorry we had to cancel today. Just as a reminder, if we have to cancel on the morning we won't be posting the cancellation here. It is not easy updating this page from the middle of the Valley Gardens and it is a slower way to get the news out. We will post the news on our Facebook page and twitter so please keep checking those sites when the weather is marginal.


Christmas Day 2017

Oooooo it's been a long time since we posted on here!! Just to say that we would love to have junior parkrun on Christmas Day and New years Day and are trying to fill the roster so that it can go ahead. If you would like to volunteer that would be brilliant. Give me (Helen) a shout on:

Happy Christmas everyone :)

Sunday 18th June – Cancelled

Sorry everyone but we have had to cancel junior parkrun on the 18th of June. It is the Valley Gardens 1940's day and the paths will be full of army vehicles, tanks, weaponry etc. It is really not safe to run with all those vehicles. We faced the same problem last year and probably will next year as well. We are still on this Sunday so see you all then.


Harrogate junior parkrun #70




Here's brother and sister, Molly and William to tell us all about junior parkrun and how they love to try and beat each other (either out of the door or across the finishing line!!):


I love junior park run because it is a fun course which is not too long and not too short. I wake up at 6:30 in the morning, laze around until 8:00 and then chaos breaks out. Me and my family all have a rushed breakfast and then we get dressed. With my brothers messing around with their clothes and only ten minutes until the run starts we manage to grab the barcodes, a few water bottles, a coat and to get out of the door. After that everything is calm again. I get my lovely, peaceful run in the mild, morning air.

A big thank you to all the volunteers who help make Junior Park run possible.

By Molly age 9

I like going to Junior Parkrun because I like to run fast and get PB’s. This week I got a new PB with a time of 10.47 and I was really happy J

Thank you to all the volunteers for helping us and encouraging us all to run.

I also love junior park run because I always beat my older sister – Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah!!!


William age 6

Thanks Molly and William, hilarious!

See you all on Sunday.

Happy parkrunning.
