About Us

Fell Foot parkrun, Newby Bridge is a FREE weekly 5km event for participants of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Fell Foot Park, Newby Bridge, Windermere, Cumbria, LA12 8NN. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, regardless of age or gender, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to run, jog or walk together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in the Fell Foot Boathouse Cafe by the lake during the summer months and Cafe Ambio at Backbarrow during the winter months - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other parkrunners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.

  • National Trust: Fell Foot park is delighted to be a parkrun venue. Like parkrun the National Trust aims to get more people enjoying outdoor spaces more often, and give people access to the beautiful countryside on their doorstep. We look forward to sharing the park with the local community and parkrunners from far and wide and we hope they enjoy the local scenery and activities.
