A round-up of the UK courses set to stage an extra event on Christmas Day

For many, nothing says Christmas quite like lacing up and going on a festive run. A number of additional parkrun events are held over the holiday season and here we list those in the UK taking place on Christmas Day.

Our article on the fastest and toughest parkruns in the UK (available here) was among the most read on our website in 2019 and of the events included, Worthing (ranked as the third-fastest parkrun course in the UK earlier this year) and Dulwich (sixth-fastest) are welcoming Christmas parkrunners this year.

Check out the full list of Christmas parkruns below and see parkrun’s full ‘Christmas & New Year Compendium’ at parkrun.org.uk/special-events
