Special events at Lee-on-the-Solent parkrun

Dear all,

It's hard to believe we are in October already! We have a number of special runs/events coming up, so here they are below, as always we rely on a number of volunteers to make these happen, so if you can help out please let us know by emailing the address at the bottom of this post.

26th October - Halloween dress up themed event, this is always very popular, we are also giving people a chance to pace, so are looking for pacers every 2 minutes from 19 - 39 and a run/walk pacer

9th November - Everyone has a pair of brightly coloured snazzy socks right? Let's brighten up a cold November day by wearing your most outrageous coloured socks!

21st December - Our main Christmas themed dress up event, and maybe a bit of music to get us in the Christmas mood :) we would also like to have a pacing event, this time even numbers every 2 minutes from 18-40 and a run/walk pacer

25th December (Christmas Day) 9am start - What a wonderful way to start Christmas day before tucking into the turkey and chocs! This is always a really special run with a fabulous atmosphere, a lovely way to start the day

28th December - Normal Saturday run

1st January (New Years Day) 10.30am start - What a brilliant way to start 2020, this is the only day of the year that you can run/walk at 2 different parkrun's and get results for both, please travel carefully if you are thinking of doing a double parkrun.

4th January - Normal Saturday run

Please find the link to the Christmas/New Year compendium, this is where events declare whether they are hosting an event on Christmas and New Years Day, there is no expectation from HQ, it is down to individual events to decide, and we have until December 17th to declare!


We hope you can all join us for some or all of these events, if you have any questions/would like to volunteer please email us leeonthesolent@parkrun.com

Thank you,

Maggie (Event Director)
