Where is it?
The event takes place at Pontypool Park, Torfaen. 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!
Pontypool parkrun needs you!
It is entirely organised by volunteers - email firstname.lastname@example.org to help.
Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in the Active Living Centre where the cafe now hosts a 'dog cafe' too. Dogs are welcome to come in and they sell doggie treats too - please come and join us!
