New Park Run - Tredegar House

As most members will have heard by now, from this Saturday 26 March we have another Park Run choice.As well as the FoD 5k near Coleford, there’s one organised by Lliswerry Runners, Caerleon RC and Newport & E Wales Tri Club  at Tredegar House on the West side of Newport not far from M4 J28. Like all Park Runs it starts at 9am every Saturday, free entry, but you have to register just the once on the Park Run website.

  1. And I saw on the free paper that the FOD now do a junior Parkrun once a month. the next one is on 23 April.

  2. Will the Tredegar Park venue count for the Club Championship?

  3. I'm pretty sure that it won't. It's only the FOD one. But I'm sure one of the club champs people will confirm.

  4. no - the times won't be comparable as the route/terrain could be very different. Only the FOD counts for the club champs.

  5. The Forest of Dean AC Junior 2k parkrun is open to any juniors. Children as young as 5 take part so it is a good opportunity, even for some of those unable to compete elsewhere, to have a go...and have some fun!

    Usually the FOD junior parkruns are held at 10:00am on the last Saturday of every month. However, as a special event to celebrate the 1st anniversary of the 5k FOD parkrun (and St George's day!) the junior parkrun event has been brought forward by 1 week this month to 23rd April.

    Remember to register on the 'parkrun' website in advance and print off your barcode. You only need to do this once (valid for all parkruns) and it's free!

    Please spread the word as it would be nice to see some young Chepstow Harriers athletes there in future.
