Christmas Day 2021 and New Years Day 2022

We are very pleased to announce that we will be hosting a parkrun on Christmas Day and New Years Day. We will unfortunately not have access to the toilets on Christmas Day so please be prepared for this. We will, as usual, provide hot drinks post parkrun at the finish so please bring along your own mugs. We look forward to seeing you.


International Women’s Day

Come along and join us to celebrate international women’s day. Bring a female friend, dress in purple and enjoy some of our special cakes. There will be gang of female volunteers to cheer you along! Our usual place and usual start time just a little extra celebration for those women who may not otherwise give parkrun a go! #IWD


New Years Day 2020

The next parkrun at Brandon Country Park is NEW YEARS DAY @ 10:30

All the information about parking on last years applies or see our facebook page for more info.

Look forward to seeing you there!



New Years Day parkrun

Not long now till our New Years Day parkrun. Parking is going to be tight so please have a read:
Important parking information - New Years Day

There must be no parking on the entrance road to the park. If you park here you will be asked to move it.

The park are allowing us access to the overflow carparks again. Please follow the directions of the parking marshals.

But you can really help us by:

Arriving early and parking in Wimbledon Avenue Industrial Estate. Parking is roadside, please be courteous to the business owners who may need access. A short walk though brings you out to the bottom of the hill, which is a 10 ish minute walk to the start. I will put out some signs to help you through, and hope to have some marshals to help too. You could use it as a warm up...

If you are local, leave your car at home - I am going to!

Car sharing, particularly if you are doing a double from another local parkrun.

Cycling - believe it or not a local parkrunner did the double with Thetford and cycled between the two. There is time...just

Many thanks



Christmas Day parkrun at 10am

So we have one more Saturday left of 2018 but before that we have our FIRST EVER BCP Christmas parkrun!!! We don’t expect car parking to be a problem as the country park will be closed. With that in mind we have organised a key so the toilets will be open and we are bringing along flasks of hot water, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and mulled wine to ensure we can have a festive moment with you all when we finish.

If you remember we would love for as many of you as possible to bring along a travel mug with your barcode! Otherwise it’s a usual parkrun with all the usual wonderful volunteers, signs all around the course but please remember we have a later start time of 10am. Look forward to seeing you there!

Thee most wonderful time of year comes round so quickly.... yes it the time of year that we can do extra parkruns. Yippee.

Once again this year Brandon Country Park parkrun will be offering a New Years Day parkrun. Start time is set at the moment for 10:30am, but we are still talking to our sister parkruns at Thetford and Bury St Edmunds to confirm this. I will post again once we are certain.
