Mernda parkrun is hosting a special New Year's Day parkrun at 8am. NYD is the only day that you can run double parkruns in one day, so keep your eye out on the other local parkruns to see at which event you'll do your 9.30 run! There isn't a better way to start the new decade than getting down to parkrun and joining in double the fun with your friends and community.
2018 NYD parkrun was so much fun! We simply can’t think of a better way to bring the new year in, than hitting the ground parkrunning with your parkrun community. So Mernda has decided to do it again.
January 1st, 2019 at 8am! See you at the BBQ shelter.
parkrun has a once a year option on New Year's Day, to run 2 events on the one day - regardless of what day it falls on. We are excited to announce that Mernda will have a New Year's event at 8:00am!
New Year's day is the only day when parkrunners can complete 2 official parkruns in one day. Start times are flexible so that close by events can work together to provide doubles.
