With our Event Director Tim Rice and most of the Street parkrun core team away working at Pilton it looked like the last weekend in June might be cancelled. Not so! cried the stalwarts, we can do better than that!
So for one week only, Street parkrun bring you our very own take on Glastonbury Festival:
Starting with a musical run brief in the TBC slot, followed by a free timed 5k run or walk brought to you by our team of fantastic hipster volunteers, our distant dreamy views of Glastonbury Tor throughout, barcode scanning in one of our festival tents (Rufus the gazebo is booked to volunteer at Pilton himself, he's charity minded like that), delicious artisan rolled ice cream brought to us all by Chop & Chill and, if that's not enough excitement for a Saturday morning, in a festival twist we even have post run hot showers!
If you're local and already regretting not securing your ticket or volunteering at the Festival this year, come along and join us instead.
If you're visiting the area, be assured the roads are quiet on Saturday morning with festival-goers safely tucked up in their tents. You could even slip out from site yourself if you simply can't bear to miss parkrun!
Festival dress encouraged:
Your fave band T-Shirt, flares, neckscarf, or hippy skirt and flowery headband.... being ever mindful of the weather.... that could mean anything from wellies and raincoats to sunshades and shorts!
♧♧♧♧ UPDATE ♧♧♧♧
If you do want to join us from the Festival, bus service 669 stops at Pilton post office at 8:25 arriving at Strode College, Street at 8:45. It is a 2 minute walk round the corner to the start.
We have spoken with Frome Buses who have confirmed the bus service will be running normally on Saturday.
