Rushcliffe Parkrun @ Rushcliffe Country Park
Aug 10 @ 9:00 am

Rushcliffe Parkrun is a weekly 5km run – you against the clock – every Saturday at 9:00am.

It’s run in Rushcliffe Country Park, Nottingham, NG11 6JS. This is the course…

It costs nothing to join in but you’re asked to register before your first run. Only ever register with Parkrun once. Don’t forget to take a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won’t get a time.

And you’re welcome along whatever your pace!

Wherever possible organisers urge you to walk, jog, cycle or use public transport when attending the event. If you do have to drive, please consider car-sharing to reduce our impact on both the environment and other park users. Please also watch out for other park users when arriving and leaving. Parking may be limited so try to arrive early.
