We know, we know, but it is that time of year when the mind starts turning to thinking about sorting out the presents, writing letters to Father Christmas and of course planning for parkruns over the yuletide period. Well it is in the Greenwich parkrun household - we've been preparing since the start of September!
There will be plenty of opportunities to get in the festive spirit at Avery Hill Park with several runs happening over the Christmas and New Year season:
Saturday 21 December - this will be a Santa special and a chance to don the red and white, festive headgear and the tinsel.
Wednesday 25 December, Christmas day - there will be a run at 9am and our friends in the cafe are opening especially for us! We think they deserve a big thank you!
Saturday 28 December - the usual 9am run
Wednesday 1 January, New Year’s Day - We'll be starting at 9am while other nearby runs are starting later (all to be confirmed):
- 10am: Bromley, Hilly Fields
- 1030am: Bexley, Catford, Southwark
Your only opportunity each year to fit in two parkruns on the same day. Are you up to the challenge?
For those runners visiting family and friends over the festive period keen to find out what parkruns are taking place elsewhere in the country there is a handy Christmas compendium list.
