Christmas & New Year

With the festive season rapidly approaching we thought we'd keep you updated on Barry Island parkrun plans for Christmas and New Year.

There will be no additional park run on Christmas Day, we will be holding the regular Saturday runs on December 22nd & 29th at the usual start time of 9am.

There will be an additional run on New Year's Day, Tuesday January 1st at the later start time of 10:30am.

New Year's Day is the only time you can run twice and have them both count towards your milestone t-shirt so there's plenty of time to run at 9am at Cardiff or Newport before traveling at a safe and sensible speed to Barry Island for the 10:30 start.

Make sure you bring your barcode and Speedos so you can join us for the annual New Year's Day Swim at midday.

We will of course be needing volunteers over the Christmas period, particularly New Year's Day so if you can spare the time to help out please let us know.

It's not too early to bag a place on our volunteer team for the day, you can get in touch with us at Please include your barcode number and let us know which day/s you'd like to volunteer.

Thank you.
