Celebrate Canada Day at parkrun


Looking for something to do this Canada Day long weekend?  At many of our events you can start it off with an extra parkrun!


Each year parkrun events opt in to stage an extra parkrun on July 1st.  You can check if your event will be holding an extra event on our special events page.


What happens at parkrun on Canada Day?  Well it’s much the same as a regular parkrun!  Same time, same course, same 5k, and a lot more Canada flags


We’re back to back this year as after the celebrations we do it all again the day after at our regular Saturday events.


This will be our first Canada Day parkrun since 2019, before the COVID pandemic, so there will be much to celebrate!


Here’s some highlights of past years’ events
