Christmas and New Year arrangements at Newcastle parkrun

Saturday 19th December – usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM but with Christmas themed fancy dress encouraged and prizes for the the best costumes (runners and volunteers eligible). Santa Claus has agreed to provide the lead sleigh bike again this year. Coffee and mince pies afterwards at the Café in the park, usual menu also available; café staff will be attired in their best Christmas jumpers to welcome you all.

Christmas Day - extra parkrun starting at 10:00AM, the latest time allowed by HQ. We had to cancel the event on Christmas Day last year so hope that if an icy morning the later start will allow time for the ice to melt. We will need enough volunteers to come forward for the event to go ahead.

Boxing Day – usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM. Full set of volunteers needed, please volunteer if you can.

New Years Day – no parkrun at Newcastle but there may be extra parkruns arranged at other venues in the North East or there is the New Years Day resolution run on the Town moor – 10km, two X-country laps of the Town moor. Just the job to clear a hangover!

Saturday 2nd January – usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM
