New Year

King's Lynn will be holding its usual 'New Years Day' parkrun event starting at the usual time of 9 am. Come along and shake off the Christmas and New Years Eve blues with a refreshing run around the Walks. We are calling this the 'Detox' run so do bring along any healthy (or maybe not so healthy) leftovers that you wish to share with your running mates. See you on the 1st Jan.


3rd Anniversary 13th September 2014

We will be three years old on 13th September. Lets celebrate!

Join us for a festive party walk, jog or run.

Bring goodies to share with parkrun buddies old or new and stay for a chat and a coffee once the hard work's done.

The fun and friendship are always free.


Easter run on 19th March

We have an Easter themed run on 19th March.

Eastery fancy dress, bonnets, bunnies and  chickens are most welcome.

Bring along some Easter goodies to share after the run.

Spring has Sprung!



Free Training Sessions – Get into GEAR!

Ryston Runners free training sessions for Bespak Grand East Anglia Run

Sessions extended into April

When: Wednesdays between 7 and 8 pm

Weekly until: 23 April

The weekly sessions will be led by UK Athletics qualified coaches. Aimed at beginners and improvers, the sessions will include track work, practice runs and practical advice about equipment and techniques, helping runners to prepare for race day on Sunday, 4 May.

Previous sessions have been really popular and are designed to help people who are taking part in competitive running for the first time or for people who are looking to improve their techniques. Feedback from previous year's sessions has been really good.

parkrun Run Director and chair of Ryston Runners Andy Smith says: "Good preparation is the key to success in any race. These sessions are suitable for complete beginners as well as regular runners and we welcome everyone. Whatever level you are running at, the sessions will be fun and everyone will come away with some great tips."
