Festive Period 2017

A little late again this year but here's our Festive Plans...

We'll be at the racecourse as normal at 9am on the 23rd - there's a 'Elf' theme so get your togs on! If you're on Facebook, you can sign up for the event here.

On the 'big day' you can work up an appetite for your turkey with a special extra parkrun at 9am. The Facebook event is here.

On the first of January 2017 you can do it all again, 9am, normal time, normal place, bring your friends, bring your family, bring your hangovers for a special New Years Day parkrun. The Facebook event is here.

If that's all not enough...

The first day of the year is very special in parkrun-world, it's the only day that you can do two parkruns. Our friends at Rothwell parkrun and Nostell Priory parkrun are pulling out all the stops to welcome parkrunners at 10:30am so there's plenty of time to 'do the double'.

All these runs count towards parkrun clubs so between 23rd December and the first of January, the dedicated amongst you can clock up five runs.

Let's not forget though that we also need a full crew of volunteers to run these event smoothly, if you can help, or you can ask your families to help out that would be great. Please drop us an email at pontefracthelpers@parkrun.com.

Season's Greetings,

The Pontefract parkrun Team

Defib Appeal

As well as being Valentine's Day today, February is also National Heart Month... 
It's a fact of life that when people get active - as they do at parkrun week in, week out - sometimes something goes awry with the 'ol ticker. In these cases, it can really help chances of a positive outcome to have an Automated External Defibrillator close by. 


We'd really love to be able to raise the money to have a defibrillator available at Pontefract parkrun. We can get one along with appropriate training for a group of people for £750 and we've already got over £200 in the kitty. 


We're not asking for large donations, if everyone who took part yesterday gave a couple of quid we'd reach our target straight away. If you can spare say, the price of a pint, please visit our 'about us' page and click the 'Donate to parkrun' button. Please add the 'special instruction' - 'Pontefract defib' as you go through checkout.
Thanks in advance and hopefully we'll be asking for volunteers to train very soon!

 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Too early? Maybe so, but the volunteer team at Pontefract parkrun have been beavering away to plan for the festivities...

On the 'big day' you can work up an appetite for your turkey with a special extra parkrun at 9am. If you're on Facebook, you can sign up for the event here.

Boxing Day is a Saturday so we'll be back at the racecourse as normal at 9am to work off some of the excesses.

On the first of January 2016 you can do it all again, 9am, normal time, normal place, bring your friends, bring your family, bring your hangovers for a special New Years Day parkrun. The Facebook event is here.

But wait... in true TV shopping channel style... there's more!

The first day of the year is very special in parkrun-world, it's the only day that you can do two parkruns. Our friends at Nostell Priory parkrun are pulling out all the stops to welcome parkrunners at 10:30am so there's plenty of time to 'do the double'.

For the record, the second of January is a normal Saturday.

All these runs count towards t-shirts so between Christmas Day and the second of January, the dedicated amongst you can clock up five runs.

Let's not forget though that we also need a full crew of volunteers to run these event smoothly, if you can help, or you can ask your families to help out that would be great. Please drop us an email at pontefracthelpers@parkrun.com.

Seasons Greetings,

Results issues 10th October 2015

Wow! What a great turnout this morning over 270 runners graced a misty Pontefract park!

I'm afraid we've had a little difficulty with the technology this morning so the results will be delayed.

PLEASE HELP BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW, PARTICULARLY THE BIT ABOUT FILLING IN THE FORM.

If you ran this morning can you please fill this form even if you're not very sure about your time. Information like 'I finished a couple of seconds behind Joe Bloggs' can be really useful.

Thanks for your time and we'll do our very best to produce a decent set of results.
