Christmas and New Year 2017/18 at Newport parkrun

We like to be organised at Newport parkrun and as such have just declared our intentions to run Christmas and New Year parkruns.

Here is a summary of our festive arrangements - please note, should we not get enough volunteers then none of these events will be able to go ahead, so please put your name down now by emailing

Saturday 16th December - Festive parkrunday! (9am)

Wear your most festive or festive outfits to run, jog, walk or volunteer and then join us in the Brewhouse after parkrun for our traditional mince pie and festive sing-along!

Saturday 23rd December (9am)

We will run, jog, walk and volunteer as normal on this date, just with a little extra festive cheer so close to Christmas!

Monday 25th December - Christmas Day parkrun (9am)

We will be parkrunning at Newport parkrun at 9am. We do need volunteers in order that this event can go ahead so please message us if you can help, and wear your best festive outfits!

If you're not in Newport on Christmas Day but still wish to parkrun, then take a look at the Christmas Compendium, as there might be an event up and running wherever you happen to be this Christmas.

Please note that on Christmas Day you will not be able to register more than one parkrun. Your opportunity to register two parkruns on one day is coming... keep reading...!

Saturday 30th December - normal parkrunday (9am)

Monday 1st January - New Year's parkrunday! (10:30am)

We are planning an extra parkrunday at 10:30am on New Years Day. We do need volunteers to make this happen, so if you do fancy lending a hand in the hi-vis then please let us know as soon as possible!

The New Year's Day parkrun is at the later time to enable you to do the 'double' this means you could run at either Riverfront or Cardiff who both start at 9am.

As always, please drive responsibly and with care between each event location.

Please get in touch if you’d like to volunteer over the Christmas period. The sooner we fill the roster the more relaxed we can be...
