Rising Sun parkrun - Weekly Free 5km Timed Run

What is Rising Sun parkrun?

It is a 5km run - it's you against the clock.

When is it?

Every Saturday at 9:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place in The Rising Sun Country Park, Whitley Road, Benton, Newcastle Upon Tyne NE12 9SS. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before your first run. 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!

Rising Sun parkrun needs you!

It is entirely organised by volunteers - email risingsunhelpers@parkrun.com to help.

We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in the Rising Sun Country Park café - please come and join us!
