Every Saturday at 9:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place at Merthyr Leisure Village, Merthyr Tydfil, CF48 1UT. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time

How fast do I have to be?

We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Merthyr parkrun needs you!

It is entirely organised by volunteers - email to help.

We're friendly!
