Festive Period 2017

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

We'll be at the racecourse as normal at 9am on the 23rd - 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.

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 Rothwell parkrun and 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 parkrun clubs so between 23rd December 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
