Christmas Day parkrun in Hotham Park

THE chance to get some exercise before tucking into Christmas dinner is on offer tomorrow (Thursday, December 25).

A special Christmas Day parkrun is being held in Hotham Park at 9am to give runners the chance to burn-off some energy before enjoying the excesses of the day.

Thanks to the organisers, the 5K run will also be held in the park on New Year’s Day at 10.30am, as well as Saturdays over Christmas and New Year.

Hotham Park has been hosting the event every Saturday since May thanks to funding from Arun Wellbeing and the help of Bognor Triathlon Club, which runs the event along with an invaluable team of volunteers.

All that is needed to take part is a running kit and a personalised barcode (which can be found online at www.parkrun.org.uk) to scan at the finish line.
