Christmas and New Year Events 2017


Christmas and New Year Plans - 2017


We've got our heads together and decided what events we're going to be staging over the festive period.


Event 298-33


As many of you may be aware, parkrun teams can stage extra events on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, in addition to their usual Saturday morning events.


Events on those days can be started slightly later than normal to allow runners a slight lie in, and (for New Year's Day only) allow runners the option to take part in multiple parkruns on the same day.


Event 298-24


As per our usual tradition for the last nearly seven years we've been on the block, we have decided that Bolton parkrun will NOT be staging an event on Christmas Day. But, fear not, we WILL be putting an extra event on, on New Year's Day! Start time will be 10:00am (can we get a 'woop woop?!').


Event 298-40


This means you can get your Bolton parkrun fix on the following dates over the festive period (all 9am starts unless stated otherwise)


  • Saturday 23rd Dec (festive fancy dress special!)

  • Saturday 30th Dec

  • Monday 1st Jan (10am start time)


Event 298-29
