parkruns over the Christmas and New Year holidays

Over the Christmas and New Year holidays is a great time to join a parkrun. We strongly recommend that you check local event pages and social media to check if the event is going ahead. With December 24th and 31st being public holidays in certain Nordic countries, some events are not taking place on these days – plus with the unpredictable weather at this time of year, it’s worth checking before you set off to avoid disappointment.


On New Year’s Day all events have the possibility to hold a special extra parkrun on this day, which will start at the regular time (9:00 for Denmark, and 9:30 for Sweden, Finland and Norway).


Below you can see a list of which events are planning to host a New Year’s Day event on Sunday January 1st:


Again, please check your local event page and social media to make sure the event is taking place and hasn’t had to be cancelled due to unfavourable weather conditions.


We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Happy parkrunning everyone!
