Because we can, we are. A little bit confused, no need to be. As our venue is available to us on Christmas Day, we are having our first Christmas Day run at 10.30am. Hopefully this will give people a chance to get the dinner in the oven, nip over to the racecourse for a quick (or slow if you feel like it) 5km parkrun, possibly a mince pie or two and a bit of Christmas cheer and then shoot home to a perfectly cooked Christmas dinner. If you want to wear a Santa hat, belt a head to increase the spirit of the season.
Although Christmas Day is a Monday in 2017, many parkruns around the country are running a special event. However we unfortunately cannot do so at Johnstown as the castle grounds are closed for a well deserved break for all the staff at the castle. We will however run as normal on Saturday 23rd December and Saturday 30th December, and we have an extra parkrun on New Year's Day January 1st at 11:00am to get those new year's resolutions off to a good start!
