Festive Period 2016

A little late this year but here's our Festive Plans...

Christmas Eve is a Saturday and we'll at the racecourse as normal at 9am - there's a 'Elf' theme so get your togs on! If you're on Facebook, you can sign up for the event here.

On the 'big day' you can work up an appetite for your turkey with a special extra parkrun at 9am. The Facebook event is here.

New Year's Eve is a Saturday - normal parkrunday for us.

On the first of January 2017 you can do it all again, 9am, normal time, normal place, bring your friends, bring your family, bring your hangovers for a special New Years Day parkrun. The Facebook event is here.

If that's all not enough...

The first day of the year is very special in parkrun-world, it's the only day that you can do two parkruns. Our friends at Nostell Priory parkrun are pulling out all the stops to welcome parkrunners at 10:30am so there's plenty of time to 'do the double'.

All these runs count towards t-shirts so between Christmas Eve and the first of January, the dedicated amongst you can clock up five runs.

Let's not forget though that we also need a full crew of volunteers to run these event smoothly, if you can help, or you can ask your families to help out that would be great. Please drop us an email at pontefracthelpers@parkrun.com.

Season's Greetings,

The Pontefract parkrun Team
