Parkrun At Christmas

parkrun logo

Anyone hoping for an extra helping of parkrun this festive season could be in luck. As well as the existing events taking place on their regular Saturday slots on 27 December and 3 January, many will host additional events on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

There are 129 events across the UK who will gather on Christmas morning to start the day with a 5k. There will be 159 New Year’s Day events, with many starting a little later than the usual 9am start, perhaps allowing for those nursing a heavy head from the previous evening’s merriment.

For full Christmas and New Year’s parkrun listings, visit the parkrun website.

    It's worth pointing out that New Year's Day is the only day of the year where you can do two parkruns. Many events around the country are timed to allow this.
