Each Parkrun event is able to choose to add a Christmas Day and New Years Day Parkrun each year in addition to the regular Saturdays.  Whilst Wilson Botanic will NOT be hosting an additional event this year Frog Hollows will be holding a Christmas Day run and Berwick Springs will be holding a run on New Years Day.  See the full Christmas / New Years Compendium here for all Parkruns in Australia.  There is sure to be one close by wherever you are!
