Christmas and New Year…..

We're rapidly hurtling towards December which means its time to tell you of our plans for the festive period. Christmas and New Year's Days are the only time we can hold parkrun outside of a Saturday and we're pleased to say that this year we will have an event on both days - starting at 9am as usual.

In addition, New Year's Day enables parkrunners to do the double, with local events adjusting start times to allow for travel between the two. For the third year in a row, our friends at Keswick will start at 1030am. (This is the bit where we remind you about driving sensibly between Carlisle and Keswick!)

Obviously these events can only go ahead with the support of our volunteers so do get in touch if you'd like to be part of the festive fun!


Run Report, Event #222

******Please note - due to Manorfest taking place, parkrun will be cancelled on June 10th******


There was a bit of a chill in the air on Saturday morning, but it soon disappeared once the 232 runners were off and running. 13 of you were brand new to parkrun - welcome! Tourists last weekend represented Warrington, Victor Harbor (Australia), Oakwell Hall, Newent, Lloyd, South Manchester and Cuerden Valley parkruns. Also running were parkrun uber tourists John and Joanna Cassells - they have run 233 times and visited a whopping 178 different events! I remembered after the run that I've run with them before at Penrith and Keswick. They have distinctive tshirts which when they are stood together say 'We love parkrun'.


Thanks to run director Emma and her team of volunteers. Saturdays hi-viz heroes were: Alicia CARTER • Allan CAMPBELL • Annika STUMPF • Caroline Sarah EVANS • Catherine CUTTS • David OAKLEY-JENNER • Emma RICHARDSON • Esther ATTWOOD • Frances BRAITHWAITE • Hailie SOUTHALL • Jessica SCOTT-LAMONT • Josette BILLETT • Katie BRINSDEN • Kelly PATTISON • Lindsay GRAHAM • Michael NATTRASS • Neil ERRINGTON • Paula HARMON • Sarah HAMILTON • Susan FAWKES • Tracy BECKETT • Wayne STEVENS • William CARTER • Zoe EDMONDSON

Enjoy the rest of your week and fingers crossed for weather like this on Saturday!


It’s beginning to look alot like Christmas……….

I know lots of you don't want to think about it yet, but Christmas is coming! Hopefully, the fact that on Christmas Day, Carlisle parkrun will be ON will ease the pain! Usual time, 9am. AND........there will also be parkrun on New Years Day - at 10am (that extra hour in bed may prove handy for some of us!)

Christmas and New Year are the time when we can hold extra events - so they all count in your club progression! And what's better than the chance to parkrun 4 times in 10 days!

If you're going to be away over the Christmas period, you can check the CHRISTMAS COMPENDIUM to see if there will be a parkrun near you holding their own Christmas and New Year runs.



Carlisle parkrun CANCELLED June 28th

Manorfest is taking place in Chances Park on June 28th, therefore there will be no parkrun that morning.

A perfect chance to partake in some tourism!
