Celebrations planned to mark 100th Alnwick Parkrun

Alnwick is set to celebrate its 100th Parkrun event – and participants are being encouraged to come along in fancy dress.

Tuesday, 21st June 2022, 11:33 am

Since the event started on January 12, 2019, over 3,500 people have completed the picturesque course around the Pastures, clocking up over 6,200 finishes between them and supported by a friendly and welcoming band of volunteers.

After a week’s break due to the Might Dub Fest, this Saturday’s milestone Parkrun event promises to return with a festive atmosphere.

The 5km event with beautiful views of Alnwick Castle will start at 9am from the Pastures next to the Lion Bridge and first-timers are particularly welcome. Fancy dress is not compulsory.
