If you fancy a bit of a challenge to start the New Year with, why not give the traditional Wanstead Flats and Valentines double parkrun a go?
Our friends at Wanstead Flats will be holding an additional event at 9 o'clock on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, and there will also be an additional event later on at Valentines, at 10 o'clock. Both events will count as an official parkrun, bringing you 2 closer to your next milestone T-shirt! If you fancy an extra challenge (and know the way!), you could even run between the two events as well!
We can't guarantee that the car parks within Valentines Park will be open on New Year's Day, so please factor that into your planning if you'll be driving.
Here's how the whole festive period is shaping up locally:

Valentines parkrun is going ahead as usual, at 9 o'clock.
