Unfortunately we have had to cancel tomorrow's (20th January) parkrun due to the weather conditions. The paths are covered with either ice or hard packed snow making running far too dangerous.

Apologies - see you all next week



***** FIRST TIMERS DAY *****

We will be holding our "First Timers Initiative" at parkrun this Saturday and hope to continue this on a regular basis through 2018.

This Saturday 13th January we will be welcoming all new "first timers" along to our parkrun at Craigtoun Park, St Andrews. If you know someone who has always wanted to come along but were not sure about it then this Saturday is the day for them. You can either run, walk, skip, volunteer or just come along and see what all the fuss is about and what 200+ local folks do with their Saturday mornings

All first timers will be met at the front entrance of Craigtoun at 9.15am where they will be welcomed and given a very brief chat about parkrun, how it started, how it works, social and health benefits etc.

All you need to do is register and bring your barcode along.

Following the meet and greet at the entrance to the park we will keep all the first timers together, introduce you to the tail walkers and then take our place at the start area where the other parkrunners will be assembled.

It will be the most EPIC thing you do this weekend



Xmas day parkrun anyone??

We've declared ourselves a "yes" for xmas day parkrun again - EPICNESS awaits!!!!

Will be the usual reverse run, picnic hut finish with plenty of goodies and secret santa - no hot rolls this year (xmas day run is just too popular and was a nightmare to cater for 200 filled hot rolls) there will be teas and coffee's etc

More news to come closer to the time - only 9 more parkruns until the big day - just cannae wait




We will be Celebrating our 5th Birthday on SATURDAY 6th MAY - a wee bit later this year but that will just make it more special The winners of the Points Tables will be awarded their trophies along with some other special achievement awards. We will have the large marquee on the grass at the old finish area and plenty sandwiches, cakes, biscuits, fizzy pop and general birthday celebration goodies. Hopefully as many as possible can come to this event which will be held following the parkrun that day - we would also be delighted if you could bring along some cakes, sandwiches etc to help us out. Look forward to seeing everyone there and lets once again smash through the 300 attendance barrier !
