Nearby Blackweir and Newport parkruns will be holding extra events at 9am on Christmas morning.

Some of the Grangemoor team will be going along to run, others will be lending a hand. If you're available to help please email or with your name and barcode number and we'll get you on the roster.

New Year's parkrun

New Year's Day is an opportunity for parkrunners to "do a double" - two parkruns in one day!

Selected parkruns put on additional events, with staggered start times to facilitate this. Local options are:

If running Blackweir and Barry Island parkruns isn't quite enough, why not stay for the Barry Island New Year's Day Swim at noon? Or come along to Grangemoor on the 2nd and run three different parkruns in just over 24 hours?

To put these events on the organisers need volunteers aplenty. We're not taking the day off: Many of the Grangemoor Gang will be participating as runners and/or helpers on New Year's Day. If you're able to assist email, or
Please support our neighbouring events - your help will be greatly appreciated.

Further afield other parkruns may also be holding extra events for Christmas or New Year's Day.
All the details are being collated in the parkrun Christmas Compendium.
