In total, it is possible to do 6 parkruns in 15 days over the festive period! All extra events count towards your milestone t-shirts (running and/or volunteering).
If you'd like to go further afield, or you are away over the festive period, you can check out the full list of extra events on the Christmas Compendium.
If you are planning on doing two parkruns on New Year's Day then the parkrun New Years Day 2020 double finder is a great tool.
As always, parkruns are subject to cancellation if it’s deemed unsafe. Therefore, if it is icy then please check the events news page on the parkrun website and also their social media for updates.
All the event teams would love to hear from you if you'd like to volunteer. Check out the volunteer page on their website for their email address.
If you know someone who is going to be on their own this festive season then please invite them to run, jog, walk, volunteer or watch at a parkrun!
