Seasonal parkrun Arrangements

Just a reminder that this year we will have additional events at Braunstone on Christmas Day at 9am, and New Years Day at 10:30am. There will also be an event at Leicester Victoria at 9am on New Years Day, giving you the chance of 2 parkruns in one day for the only time each year!

Just in case you are visiting friends and family elsewhere in the region over the Christmas period, here is a summary of when the local events are on, giving you lots of extra opportunities to volunteer or run.

Christmas Day and New Years day parkruns

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting an extra parkrun on Christmas Day at 9am, and also an extra parkrun on New Years day at 10:30am.

The parkrun on New Years Day is being held at the slightly later time of 10:30am to allow runners the chance to run at both Leicester Victoria (start time 9am) AND Braunstone parkruns. This is the only day of the year that runners are allowed to do 2 parkruns in one day, with them both counting towards milestone T shirts.

With Christmas Eve and New Years Eve on Saturdays this year, this means you have the chance to run at FIVE parkruns in 8 days!!

As usual, we can only host these extra parkruns if we have enough volunteers so if you would like to help out at one of the events, please email us at or contact us through the Facebook page.

Happy parkrunning!

Julie, Mark and the Core Team
