Leazes parkrun #17 – Christmas Day 2019

Thank you to everyone that ran and volunteered at our first Christmas parkrun. Thank you for bringing food and drink to share in the bandstand and thank for you the lovely comments. Even Santa paid us a visit, after a long night of delivering presents, to lead the runners around the park in his sleigh!

Christmas parkrun 2019

It's only November but the Christmas lights have been switched on in toon so it's appropriate to tell you that we'll be having an additional event on Christmas Day at the usual time of 9am provided the weather fairies behave and we have enough volunteers. Perhaps we could have some mince pies and other treats in the bandstand after the run so we'd love it if you could bring something to share. Fancy dress is encouraged and if you're good, Santa might even join us on his sleigh to lead the runners around the park. Please get in touch if you'd like to help.


Leazes parkrun #10 – 02/11/19

Ten events! Where does the time go? It was a beautiful morning for a run round Leazes Park. We had a number of tourists visiting, including a very friendly bunch from Middlesbrough who came along to the cafe after the run to help sort our tokens. One of them, Ian Hall, is a member of the 500 club so it was great to finally see a 500 tee in the flesh.


We were fortunate to have two excellent photographers. Ian Harman's photos of everyone going round the lake are here. Eddy Bamber, a tourist visiting from down South, also took some gorgeous shots of our park before and after his run and they are here. Many thanks to both. Enjoy!

The Inaugural

Thank you to everyone that ran, volunteered, donated money, and supported in any capacity to make the Leazes parkrun inaugural a great success. Even the parkrun weather fairies played their part as we were blessed with strong sunshine and a cool breeze.

We are very grateful to photographer extraordinaire Maggie Davison for capturing the morning with her arsenal of cameras. Here are just a few of her snaps. The full set is available on the Facebook page.

There are also a few photos taken by Gywn Williams, our visitor from North Wales, on the Flickr page. https://www.flickr.com/groups/leazes-parkrun/pool/

We hope you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seeing you in future weeks.

If you'd like to volunteer at any of the forthcoming events, please email leazes@parkrun.com
