#NHS70 celebrations – Saturday 9 June 2018

Our near neighbours at the Colney Lane parkrun will be taking part in the #NHS70 celebrations on Saturday morning - they are, after all, situated in the shadow of the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital - and if anyone wants to join them I know you'll be made to feel very welcome.

We have nothing special planned at Eaton Park, but if you want to dress up like a doctor or a nurse or some other kind of NHS worker this Saturday morning then please fell free ...

Christmas 2018

As usual, there will be an extra Norwich parkrun on Christmas Day, starting as ever at 9am with free tea & coffee for all afterwards.

We will be using our traditional Christmas Day course - start in the trees by the East car park, almost three laps of the park including the boating lake on each lap and finish along the normal Saturday finish avenue.

Seasonal attire will be welcome and a few plates of nibbles to share afterwards will be even more welcome please.

We achieved our record attendance of 799 runners on Christmas Day 2017. Who knows how many we'll have this year? Merry Christmas!

And for the avoidance of any doubt, there will definitely not be an extra Norwich parkrun on New Year's Day 2019.


Please park considerately!

When travelling to the Norwich parkrun by car, please make sure that you park with consideration for others.

This means not blocking in local residents and not parking at either the Colman Junior School or the Clare School which are both out of bounds to parkrunners looking for somewhere to park.

Public transport, bicycle, on foot, car share - these are all good things. If all else fails and you have to drive yourself, please consider parking some way away and jogging the last bit as part of your warm-up. Thank you :)
