Special arrangements for extra parkruns over the Christmas and New Year period

Christmas Day parkrun.

We will be hosting a Christmas Day parkrun at Basingstoke War Memorial Park starting at 9am as usual, on Wednesday 25th December.


Please feel free to come in fancy dress and join in the fun.

New Year's Day parkrun.

We will be hosting a parkrun at Basingstoke War Memorial Park at the usual 9am start time on New Year's Day (Wednesday 1st January).

What about Saturday 28th December?

parkrun will happen at the usual 9am start time on the Saturday between Christmas and New Year at Basingstoke War Memorial Park.

Note that volunteers will be needed for all of these parkruns so if you can help out at any of them please contact the Basingstoke parkrun office.

What if I am not in Basingstoke this Christmas?

There is a special page of Christmas and New Year parkrun arrangements at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/special-events/. Some parkruns are happening on Christmas Day and New Year's Day and some are not, and in some cases times will be changed. The Special Events page will tell you which parkruns are happening and if they have changed their start time on either date. So if you are away from Basingstoke for Christmas or New Year, there may still be a parkrun you can experience.

Please note that any of these parkruns may cancel at short notice due to poor or dangerous weather conditions, so you are advised to check with individual parkruns that you plan to visit closer to the time, and think carefully before travelling long distances in winter for parkrun.

Note also on New Year's Day only, that because of varied start times of individual parkruns, it may be possible to run (a maximum of) two parkruns at different locations - if so, both will count in the table of completed runs. This is not the case on Christmas Day, even if logistically possible - only one run will be recorded.
