Hove Prom parkrun cancelled on 6th July

Hove Prom parkrun will be cancelled on 6th July as Paddle Round the Pier Festival will be taking place on the prom and adjacent lawns.  Alternative local parkrun options are Hove Park, Preston Park, Bevendean, East Brighton, Lancing, Peacehaven, Seaford, Worthing and many other places across Sussex and the UK

We encourage you to come down and enjoy a fun-filled weekend at Paddle Festival.  Lots of live music, food, activities, demonstrations and retails opportunities.  It's free but donations are encouraged and all funds raised go to local charities.

(Plus an early heads up that we are also cancelled on 3rd August as the Pride Parade will be mustering on the prom that morning).

BHWRC takeover plus cake (and snow update!)

To mark "Time to Talk" Day on 2 February 2019, we are looking forward to Brighton and Hove Women's Running Club doing a full volunteer takeover at Hove Prom parkrun including pacers from 24 - 40 mins plus Jog/Walk and Powerwalk Pacers. There will also be CAAAAAAAKE!!! (And let me tell you, BHWRC do really great cake!!!!) So please bring some extra ££s down - all donations to MIND charity.

We are keeping a close eye on conditions on the prom. The snow seems to be melting but there are icy patches that we are watching carefully. We will post any updates here but for the time being, we are quietly confident that we will be going ahead!

We look forward to seeing you all and a big shout out to the fab time at BHWRC.  :-D

Hove Prom and Preston Park parkruns cancelled this Saturday due to Pride 2018

Please be advised that both Hove Prom parkrun and Preston Park parkrun are CANCELLED on Saturday 4th August due to Pride parade.  Please note, Preston Park junior parkrun is also cancelled on Sunday 5th August. With regular numbers of 400 at the Prom and 500 at Preston Park, we would like to ask  you to consider a bit of parkrun tourism rather than all rocking up that morning at the already extremely busy Hove Park. This is a perfect weekend for a trip to the stunning Bevendean with its amazing views and fabulous post-parkrun brekkie.  Or why not try a little further afield at Worthing, Peacehaven, Clair (Haywards Heath), Tilgate, Eastbourne, Horsham, East Grinstead or even the relatively recent addition of Mole Valley parkrun  set at Denbies Wine Estate on the outskirts of Dorking! A full listing of parkrun UK events is available via this link. We look forward to seeing you back on the prom as usual on Saturday 11th August. Image result for pride brighton parade start

Hove Prom parkrun is cancelled on 7th July

Please be aware that Hove Prom parkrun will be cancelled on Saturday 7th July due to Paddle Round the Pier Festival taking place.  Please consider a bit of parkrun tourism so we don't inundate Hove Park and Preston Park.  Bevendean Down parkrun is absolutely super - definitely worth a visit.  Other nearby events include Peacehaven, Worthing, Clair (Haywards Heath), Eastbourne, Tilgate (Crawley) and Horsham.  Full details of all the UK parkruns can be found on this link.

Never fear, we will be back on Saturday 14th July to celebrate our 3 year anniversary with a beach party fancy dress theme so get planning those outfits!

Hope to see you there!

Saturday 6th January – CANCELLED

Sadly, following an inspection of the Prom this evening, together with the forthcoming weather reports, we have made the decision to cancel Saturday's parkrun. The Prom has taken a considerable battering and, with the promise of more to come, we do not feel we can safely put on our event.

We have made this decision early so everyone can make alternative plans: there are plenty of other parkruns in the local area to consider. Check out our home page to see a selection of nearby events, or even indulge in some tourism further afield - but do check their websites before travel.

A huge THANK YOU to those who offered to help come and sweep the stones away. This has also been postponed in light of further bad weather, so hang up your brooms and stay home on Friday night.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Prom on January 13th.

Best wishes

Hove Promenade Core Team

 

This Saturday’s parkrun

As Storm Eleanor continues to batter the south coast, we're extremely grateful to those of you who've offered to help clear some of the detritus on Friday night.

The immediate forecast does not though look promising and whilst we still plan to do what we can with the stones and pebbles, please be aware that we will be making a decision on the safety of the course afterwards.

Decisions to cancel are never taken lightly but the safety of our runners is always of paramount importance. Make sure you've "liked" our Facebook page, followed us on Twiiter - @Hovepromparkrun and do opt in to our emails as well as checking our news page here.

These are the only ways we can contact you all so let's keep our fingers crossed that Eleanor "does one" and allows us to run on Saturday.

Thanks as ever for your support.

Hove Promenade Core Team
