Run with us on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day!

Christmas Day wouldn't be Christmas Day without our festive parkrun! We'll be here, 9am, wear your Santa Suit, something sparkly, Christmas jumper, or regular kit. And have a few chocolates with us afterwards before going home to enjoy the rest of your Christmas.

We'll also be running on New Year's Day, 9am again. Run once, or run a second parkrun, it's the only day of the year you can do a double!
