As we hurtle towards the festive season, our minds turn towards the thought of extra parkruns, and this year at Margate is no exception!
We will be running as normal on Saturday 23rd and Saturday 30th December. There will also be the opportunity to log an extra, special, festive parkrun on Monday 25th December at 9:31, meeting at the usual place.
Please note that the roads around the start area may be busier than normal and therefore we ask you to allow extra time to get parked; remembering that parking on the grass and gravel next to the start is prohibited. There also won't be any facilities (loos, cafe etc) available on Christmas morning, so please make sure you're comfortable before leaving home.
If you're not able to run, but can volunteer to help out on Christmas Day, please do get in touch, we will need the usual number of volunteers to ensure the run happens safely.
On New Year's Day, there won't be an extra event at Margate, but you are able to tour locally to Whitstable (9 am), Pegwell Bay (10 am) and Canterbury (10:30 am). Remember that you're allowed to log two runs on NYD, but please drive responsibly when dashing between parkruns. If you're away over the festive period, the Christmas Compendium lists all the extra runs that will be taking place.
On behalf of all the core team at Margate, we'd like to wish you a very Happy Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year.
