All the info you need to know about Christmas parkrun plans
We love a Christmas Day run. It’s a lovely way to start the day, everyone is always friendly and festive – and it buys us a bit of a break from sprout peeling and wrapping paper ripping!
We runners are so lucky this festive season – both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on a Saturday this year. And this, of course, means that parkrun can be a big part of our holiday plans.
If you’ve never done a Christmas Day parkrun, you’re in for a treat – bring some festive dress-up and enjoy the holiday spirit with your fellow runners.
And there’s no better way to start 2022 than with a New Year’s Day parkrun, which will be taking place one week later. While the New Year’s Day Double is no more, as announced last year, it’s always a really fun event for runners of all ages and stages.
Not sure if your local parkrun is taking part, or spending the holidays away from home? parkrun have compiled a list of all their locations, with information on whether each event will be running or not.
And even if you’re not planning on running, volunteers are always needed for these busy events – get in touch if you think you could help out.
