Christmas Day parkrun up at the Rising Sun.

This year we will be running a Christmas Day parkrun,

It will start at the same time and at the same place just like every other weekend.

Fancy Dress is optional, but at the same time greatly recommended as we don't get to look silly to often and its Christmas too.....

If you can't run then why not volunteer and enjoy the fresh Christmas morning out in the fresh air before the large Christmas

We look forward to seeing you all on the big day,

Mick and the core team.
