Newcastle parkrun will be going ahead this Saturday, but on a very slightly modified course to avoid the preparations taking place for the music festival in Exhibition Park over the Bank Holiday weekend.
The route will be the same as that used in the past on GNR and MELA weekends, starting and finishing on the Moor outside of the fenced area adjacent to Exhibition Park.
Please also note that normal access routes through Exhibition Park to the start/finish area will not be available to us. Access to the revised start/finish area will be through the gate higher up Claremont Road from the main Exhibition Park entrance or across the Moor from Gosforth and Jesmond. So please allow yourselves some extra travelling time to the event if you are coming along so that you don't miss the 9:00AM start.
All of the above pre-supposes that we can fill the volunteer roster as we still need 3 barcode scanners, 1 finish token helper, 5 marshals and, ideally a photographer, in order for the event to go ahead. If you'd like to help out with the volunteering to ensure that the event can go ahead smoothly please post a reply below or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Hope to see you on Saturday. The weather forecast looks good for running on Saturday morning!
