Christmas 2018/New Year 2019!

We will be hosting a Christmas Day parkrun at 9am with Matt as your RD. As ever we rely on lots of you volunteering to make this a safe and fun festive pre over indulgence parkrun. Fancy dress is as ever strongly recommended.

If you won't be in Northampton on Christmas day, check here nearer the time for local parkruns that will be hosting a Christmas day parkrun!

We will also be hosting a New Year's Day parkrun at 9am with Alastair as your RD. However if you can't quite make it that early on New Year's Day, or if you're looking to run a double parkrun to start your year, make sure to check the above link for other parkruns which will be running at slightly later times!



Unfortunately, we have had to cancel Northampton parkrun on Saturday 7th July.

This is due to the Northampton Town Fair being at the Racecourse on the same day, and the presence of vehicles on the paths will make it unsafe for parkrun to go ahead.

Sixfields Upton parkrun is also cancelled on 7th July.

Please check for any cancellations before attending.

Kind regards

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel Northampton parkrun on Saturday 3rd March.

The paths around the racecourse look slippery already and it's forecast to get worse. Also we don't feel that it's fair for us to ask the volunteers to stand outside for over an hour in below freezing temperatures with added windchill.

Sorry parkrunners but your safety comes first. Hopefully see you on the 10th.

Stay warm and safe.

Kind regards
Northampton parkrun team
