Christmas/New Year’s Day Events

A list of Australian parkruns which have confirmed whether or not they are holding events on Christmas and/or New Year's Day can be found on parkrun Australia's Christmas Compendium page.

Due to circumstance beyond our control we will not be holding an event on Christmas Day, however Nepean River will be starting at 8:00 am for those who are keen for a local run.

Penrith Lakes will be holding an event at 9:30 am on New Year's Day. For those who are keen to run a 'double' in the local area, Werrington Lakes Reserve will have an event starting at 7:30 am. Remember, you can officially complete 2 parkruns on New Year's Day only.

 


 

A British running web site has created a simple tool to help determine whether you could make it to another parkrun to achieve the 'NYD double', found on the Australia New Year's Day double finder page. (For those who will be overseas on NYD, visit the worldwide index to find your parkrun country.) Each country's page lists all parkruns with a NYD event as well as the nearest neighbouring parkruns which you might get to in time to do your second NYD run.

Penrith Lakes parkrun Calendar 2018-19

Our Christmas & New Years Day extra events are as follows:

  • Christmas Day: run starts at 09:00.
  • New Years Day: run starts at 09:30 (Nepean River will start at 08:00).

The complete list of Australian parkruns that have confirmed whether or not they are holding extra events on these days can be found on parkrun Australia's Christmas & New Year Compendium page. Remember, you can officially complete 2 parkruns on New Years Day only.

A privately created tool which gives a guide as to whether you could potentially make it to another parkrun to complete the 'NYD double' can be found on the Australia New Years Day 2019 double finder page. (For those who may be overseas on NYD, visit the worldwide index to this page.) To use it, just type in the name of your nearest parkrun (with or without the word "parkrun") and click "Sort by nearest" for a list of potential combinations.

Please keep in mind that our schedule is subject to change depending on other events taking place at the venue.

Some points to note:

  • On cross country days there will be another event on at the Regatta Centre, so please arrive early as there is likely to be traffic queued up at the main gate.
  • If security staff are present at the main gate collecting entry fees, please show a parkrun bar code (only one needed per car) to allow your free entry into the venue.
  • On dates when our event is unfortunately not able to be held, why not visit Nepean River parkrun or one of the other parkruns nearby (see a list on our home page).
  • Keep an eye on our Facebook page for regularly updated information on any changes to our event schedule.

4th Birthday Event

It's less than a week to go until out 4th birthday run! Dress up in purple to show your support for our volunteers. This year our birthday run will take place on our cross-country course as there is a rowing event taking place at the Regatta Centre.

parkrunners are reminded to arrive earlier than normal as traffic will likely become congested at the main gate. Staff at the gate will be collecting parking fees for rowing participants & spectators, so be sure to show your parkrun barcode (only 1 needed to be seen per car) to get your free entry to the venue.

Please come along and bring your friends to help us celebrate our 5th year of parkrun at Penrith Lakes! RSVP on our Facebook event notice to let us know you're coming.
