Christmas 2018

Once again we will be hosting a Christmas Day parkrun at Albert Melbourne. After a few years of 8am events we shifted to 9am last year and doubled our attendance. It's clearly the more popular time so we're repeating this.

9am start!


Christmas Day 2017

We will again hold an event on Christmas Day 2017. This special event will be at the special time of 9am. Many thanks to John Andrew who has volunteered to be Run Director.

We will not be holding an event on New Years Day.

The full calendar over the Christmas period is:

Saturday December 23, 8am
Monday December 25, 9am
Saturday December 30, 8am
Monday January 1, NO EVENT
Saturday January 6, 8am


Christmas Day 2016

Once again we'll be organising a special parkrun on Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25. This will be in addition to the regular parkrun on Saturday December 24. Both events will be at the regular time of 8am. We know that there are many people in Melbourne who don't have family here and the Christmas Day parkrun has become a great way to celebrate with friends.


Christmas Day and New Years Day parkruns

After our very successful run last Christmas we will again hold a run on Christmas Day this year. Also, for the first time ever, we will host a run on New Years Day. Both events will be at 8am as per usual. These are additional parkruns to our regular, Saturday events. Times, points and participation will all count as per usual. Importantly, we will still need volunteers for these events.

We will run the following events over the Christmas/New Year period:

Saturday the 19th of December
Friday the 25th of December
Saturday the 26th of December
Friday the 1st of January
Saturday the 2nd of January

All events will be at 8am.

On New Years Day, parkrun does allow people to record two, separate parkruns. There are other events around Melbourne that are hosting a later parkrun on New Years Day. Notably, both Maribyrnong and Diamond Creek parkruns will be held at 9.30am on New Years Day. For full details see:


Christmas Day 2014 parkrun

Albert Melbourne parkrun will hold our first ever Christmas Day parkrun in 2014.

The run will be held at the same time and place, 8am at Albert Park on Christmas Day. This is an official parkrun so results and points will count the same as every other run.

If you have friends and family visiting Melbourne we encourage you to bring them along, just remind them to register and bring a printed barcode.

We'll be having a BBQ breakfast and cake afterwards as the 25th of December of 2014 is also our Event Director, Joanne Watkins' 40th birthday. Any contributions to the food are welcomed but Joanne is highly allergic to strawberries and cherries so please don't bring any food containing those!
