Festive arrangements 2017

Christmas Day and New Years Day are the only days where events can hold additional runs to our usual Saturdays. Unfortunately as the Gibside grounds are closed on both of these days, we are unable to hold additional events.

Events have until the 12th of December to declare their intention to hold Christmas or New Years Day runs. Check out which events have declared already: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/christmas-compendium/

The start times of the runs can also vary on both Christmas and New Years Day, so please check the start time on the event's website. New Years Day is the only day where you can officially log two parkruns on the same day. Any second runs recorded on Christmas Day will automatically be deleted.

We will still be running as normal on the 23rd and 30th of December. Don't forget your Santa hats for the 23rd!
