Anyone going for a Xmas Parkrun?

The whole family are heading out tomorrow morning for the Brighton Parkrun. Managed to persuade them but not sure yet who will actually make it out the door with me. If you have a local Parkrun operating tomorrow will you be tempted?

Hope you all have a wonderful day whether indoors or out.

That sounds superb. I’ll be going on my Christmas run with my son which has become a thing for us. We are planning a festive 4 miles in the woods. Enjoy Parkrun 💥

That’s so lovely. I’ll be running with my older brother too who has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer so it’ll be a tough one for him but he’s determined to get as many runs in as possible before the op later in January.

Enjoy your run and Xmas day! x

Thank you CatMo.

Just finished making Christmas pies ( my first ever ! ) for my local parkrun in Divonne, France tomorrow on Christmas day. Two of my sons are running and my daughter is a marshall, so its a family affair and exceptionally, its a 10:00 start so I should have time to make some "vin chaud". Have a merry Christmas

Not me Brian, sadly. The only local-ish one to me holding a run tomorrow is too far and it doesn’t start until 9.30. We have to be out for lunch by 12pm so time would be too tight. Got double parkrun on New Years Day to make up for it! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🐕🐕

We eat out because my 93 year old mum is in a dementia care home and we’ve been advised not to bring her back to the house which might be upsetting for her when she had to leave. Lunch will be fun though. ❤️🎄

Have a blast tomorrow and here’s to a very Merry Christmas and a happy 2019 full of fabulous runs! 🏃🏃‍♀️🎄🎉

Blimey! Two Parkruns on one day. That’ll shift some calories! 👍😂 Enjoy your lunch and you too have a wonderful merry Xmas and an awesome 2019 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Thanks Brian! I’ll need some calories shifting by then that’s for sure, if what I’ve eaten already is anything to go by! 🤣

Ha ha! 😂 I know what you mean. I keep playing calorie catch-up too 😂

Hi Brian, UpTheStanley and I will be going with my lovely niece. 2 Santas and an elf, and being cheered on by brother in law who can no longer run due to health. After yesterday’s excesses it will be 🐌 pace for me! Have a great time in Brighton.

I’m then on Turkey duty so will not be on the forum for a while ....

Merry Christmas

No idea what Dexy5 was doing replying 4 hours ago (at 4 a.m.??) but to update, we're up now and preparing to leave the house in half an hour or so ……. :-)

Merry Christmas to all fellow nutters :-) :-)

Merry Xmas to you too. I hope the run was fun for you all!

I was out bright and early for Christmas parkrun this morning, great way to start the day, and a good festive turn out too! Now looking forward to New Year’s Day. Merry Christmas! 🏃‍♀️🎄🎉🥂🎅

I did Maidstone parkrun. It was heaving. So many people with nothing better to do on Christmas Day!

Are you up for it? That’s going some if you do!

Tasha99Graduate10 in reply to BrianUK

Yeah. 2 adjacent are staggering it. One at 9 and one at 10:30. 💪🏽 They do it every year. Apparently busiest run of the year.
