New Years Day parkrun 9am

Hello Clare Castle parkrunners

As it was so popular last year, we are hoping to do our New Year's Day parkrun at 9am. This should allow you to do the Haverhill or Great Conard parkrun after.

We are doing this as long as we can get enough volunteers, so if you're not running/walking but would still like to take part, please drop us an email at

Kind regards,

Clare Castle parkrun

Clare Castle parkrun would like to say a big thank you to Clare Auction for awarding us with a £100 donation.

We have managed to replace all of our tokens and have other equipment on the way.

Thank you so much for your support and the continued donations from everyone.



Competition and News

Firstly a big THANK YOU to Platform One who donated the money to buy our gazebo. Also thanks a million to all who have donated. We will be replacing tokens and various items. Any suggestions or upgrades people would like to see please let us know, such as Clocks, or marker boards etc.


Colchester Stampede 10k  is coming up on 19th May at Colchester Zoo. As a local parkrun, they would like to offer us 2 free entries for a couple of your regular runners. To be in with a chance to get a free place at this great run all you have to do is write your name on the paper which can be found at the scanning tent after our next parkrun. Names will be drawn out of a hat on the following parkrun at the beginning. If you are not there we will contact you so please ensure you leave your email address or number if you are not likely to be there again before the race. 


The run is also looking for marshals, if anyone is interested please let me know. We get £25 towards our parkrun for equipment per marshal, pretty decent.

Next week TRI SUDBURY return to take over, they were fantastic on the last one so really looking forward to having them back, cow bells and all. If you are interested in joining them please come along and take the chance to talk to the awesome team this Saturday.
