What’s News?


Newport Lakes parkrun is fast approaching our 1st Birthday (Saturday 25th August)!

So far 1166 runners have covered 18,395kms which = 3,679 laps of our course!

We've celebrated a few milestones along the way, both visitors & regulars; with many regulars on the 50 horizon!

We're a 15 minute stroll from the Newport Station (good for a warm up!), have a shelter, a couple of toilets & a drink fountain at the start/finish line.

Our course is very scenic (a teaser below!); & our volunteers super friendly!   Check out the reviews on our facebook page if you don't believe us!

We have a giant photoframe on order, so very soon, you'll be able show off to your mates where you've been running!

Looking forward to seeing all our regulars & lots of visitors over the coming weeks!
