We highlight the UK courses holding an extra event on January 1

Looking to start your year with a parkrun? Many additional UK events are being held over the festive period and here we list those taking place on New Year’s 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), Pegwell Bay (fourth-fastest) and Eden Project (fifth-fastest) are welcoming New Year’s Day parkrunners this year.

Check out the full list of UK parkruns taking place on January 1 below and see parkrun’s full ‘Christmas & New Year Compendium’ at parkrun.org.uk/special-events
