The website correctly shows that there is no Sewerby parkrun on Christmas Day or New Year's Day due to the park closure. There will be parkruns on the Saturdays as normal. ie. 21st, 28th December and 4th January.
However as we have done in the previous 5 or so years there will be a timed 5K event on the sea front on New Year's Day starting at the usual parkrun time of 9am.
Due to the current works on the sea front the start and finish will be slightly different to previous years and just below the Leisure centre on the promenade, very near to the half marathon finish for those who know this event. The route is measured and very simple in that it follows the sea front and onto the land train path on the cliff top. After turning at the land train station in front of Sewerby park gates the return is the same as the outward route.
I believe Wetherspoons to be open again at this time and as in previous years it is possible to adjurn there for breakfast etc. All the better with the Wetherspoons building expansion this year!
This event started with just about 20 athletes but depending on the weather (and the hangover from the night before!) we now seem to get between 80 and 100.
A great way to start 2020 and the next decade.
