Every week before parkrun the Run Director takes a stroll around the park checking the course and picking up litter. Plogging is a combination of walking/jogging and picking up litter.- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plogging. So, why not join your RD this parkrunday at 7:15 for a Plog around the Park before parkrun? Great way to warm up. Great way to clean the park. Great way to start the day. Bring a bag for the litter and gloves if you feel you need them.
Who knows? We might make this a weekly thing
Nothing like planning ahead is there? Well, we want to give you plenty of time to plan your parkrunnning festive season. Because at Flaxmere parkrun do we have some fun things for you.
Christmas and New Year are the only times when we can stray away from the usual Saturday morning run. Better still you can get to parkrun two parkruns on the same day. With planning you can get 6 parkruns notched up in the space of 2 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period.
How? Flaxmere parkrun will be parkrunning on Christmas Day and New Year's Day as well as the usual Saturday morning, so there's two extras for you. And to top it off, we're doing a double with Anderson parkrun. At 8am on New Year's Day you parkrun Anderson parkrun, then you take a leisurely drive to Flaxmere Park and parkrun Flaxmere parkrun starting at 9:30 am. How's that for a fun morning? There won't be any coffee available in the park though just lots of friendly camaraderie. What a great way to start the New Year!
So, to sum up the dates that you need to put in your diary:
Saturday 21 December - normal parkrun
Wednesday 25 December - bonus parkrun 8am start as usual
Saturday 28 December - normal parkrun
Wednesday 1 January - parkrun double; Anderson parkrun 8:00am, Flaxmere parkrun 9:30am
