Additional Festive Events

Wow, December is almost upon us again.

As announced at this mornings event, this year we will put on Bolton parkrun's very first Christmas Day event. The start time will be 9am in line with all other Christmas Day parkrun events.

We look forward to sharing your Christmas morning with you.

We will not be hosting an event on New Years Day, the core team are looking to go and run at another event togehter, something we don't usually get the chance to do.


Festive Events

The Festive Season is almost upon us.

As usual, Bolton parkrun will be putting on an extra event on New Years Day with a 10am start time.

Look forward to seeing you all bright and breezy for the first run of 2019 :)


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

NEW YEAR’S DAY – Event Confirmation

Pending land use permission coming through (fingers and toes crossed, peeps), we're delighted to confirm we will once again be putting on a parkrun on New Year's Day!


Start time will be 10:00am, to allow your weary heads a little extra snooze time. Otherwise, it's business as usual, and the run will count towards your total number of runs or volunteer stints for those all-important free t-shirts!


Watch this space for more information.

New Year’s Day Event Confirmation


We're delighted to confirm that we will be hosting an extra parkrun on New Year's day at 10:00am!


This marks the third occasion we've put on a New Year's day run, and we're already looking forward to it. Here's the key information you need to know:


  • The run will be taking place on Thursday 1st January, 2015.
  • The run will be starting at 10:00am (an hour later than usual - you deserve a lie in!).
  • We will be running the usual course route.
  • There will be no cones out on the route, and very few volunteers.


And that's it! All you need to do is remember your barcode, and come along to kick off 2015 in true parkrun style! We'd also love it if you could bring along a bite to eat and share to share with your fellow runners as a toast to the arrival of January 2015.


Please check out the parkrun Christmas Compendium page (compendium is a grossly under-used word...) for a full list of which parkruns are hosting Christmas Day or New Year's Day events. Runners can only attend one Christmas Day parkrun, but (where time permits) can attend up to two parkruns on New Year's Day!


Just to confirm, we will NOT be hosting a run on Christmas Day.


For further information, please speak to a member of the run director team at any upcoming run.
