King’s Lynn parkrun 8th Anniversary Birthday Run and 24 hr Marathon

8th Anniversary Birthday Party
King's Lynn parkrun celebrates its 8th anniversary birthday on Saturday 7th September when parkrunners are encouraged to wear fancy dress and to bring along party food to help us celebrate the occasion in style.
It is also hoped that following the run, parkrunners will stay for a few minutes longer to socialise and make new friendships with those you may frequently run alongside but still don't really know.

24 Hour Marathon
Hot on the heals of the Birthday Party will be the annual 24 Hour Marathon, which will go through until 9 am Sunday morning. To take part all that is required is for runners to run (or walk) the course for an hour of their choice at anytime, day or night, up until 9 am Sunday morning. You can, of course, run for longer and if you haven't ever run during the middle of the night well now is you chance to do just that.

We also use the opportunity to raise funds by asking for donations towards improvements in The Walks and have contributed to a number of projects which have also been of benefit to parkrun.

This year we are looking at adding a PA system to the cafe and additional permanent picnic benches in the area of the finish.

The cafe will be open for longer for us and a Registration tent will be set up adjacent to the cafe, which will be manned throughout the 24hr period.. All runners are requested to check in with Registration, where hot and cold drinks and snacks will also be available.

This is the fifth year that we have held the event and so far we have always managed to have runners on the course throughout the 24 hour period, so please think about what time you would like to run and sign up to take part. Last year we collectively ran over 1,000 miles throughout the period so lets see if we can beat that and make this year as successful as those in the past.

You can now opt-in to receive the volunteer emails from any parkrun of your choice. On the right hand side of your newsletter emails you’ll see the title ‘your profile’ and below that a box with a button marked ‘manage my profile’. Or on your results email is an orange button marked ‘manage my profile’ .If you click on that button you’ll get to your profile page where you’ll see another button marked ‘email options’ and if you click on that you’ll find a dropdown menu where you can select any event and click on ‘opt in’.
