Whitley Bay parkrun

What is Whitley Bay parkrun?

A free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event. Walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate – it's up to you!

When is it?

Every Saturday at 9:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place at Whitley Bay Links Common (adjacent to the bottom of Monkseaton Drive A1148), Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear, NE26 1SZ. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once and don't forget to bring a scannable 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 take part for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Whitley Bay parkrun needs you!

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

We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Di Meo's Cafe at 9 Marine Avenue, close to the War Memorial and public toilets on Watts Slope, in front of the Spanish City Dome. Come and join us on the first floor of this award winning ice cream cafe for either a hot drink and bacon sandwiches at a special rate for parkrunners presenting their barcode - please come and join us!
