Christmas day run at ODP

Ho, Ho, Ho! Yes we'll be having a parkrun on both Christmas Eve (a normal Saturday) and Christmas Day (a bonus for you all). Mince pies and Santa hats all round.

We aren't holding a New Year's Day run at ODP but checkout some alternatives here.



Event 289: 9 July 2016 Scanner issues

Apologies everyone, we have had a scanner malfunction and are unable to process the results of today's run.

If you do have your time / position details, send them with your barcode to

That may allow us to piece together people's results.


B Course this Saturday

The circus has arrived in Old Deer Park, so we will be on the B course for the week. Meet in the north east corner by the tennis courts, leave plenty of time.


Christmas Day parkrun at Old Deer Park

This year, for the first time, ODP will be hosting a Christmas Day parkrun. Please come and join us to run, cheer, or just have a mince pie. 9am start as usual and if Santa's list has you in the "undecided" column why not come down and volunteer, that's bound to nudge you towards "nice".


Update on Park repairs

Contrary to initial reports, it doesn't look like ODP will be re-turfed following the RWC Fanzone departure. Rather a process of Spiking, Rolling, and Harrowing will be followed by overseeding.

Weather allowing that will happen this year with the main overseeding in the Spring.

I have emailed all local sports retailers instructing them to stock up in XC and Trail shoes.
