Belvoir Castle parkrun

Belvoir Castle parkrun is now live

The latest parkrun for the area is now taking place every Saturday morning. Start time 9am. For more info see the main page.

“Who’s it for? – everyone! Experienced runners are welcome but this is an inclusive and truly community event, so joggers and walkers will be right at home too.

“We have 2 courses to suit the time of year / conditions, both of which set off from near the Castle visitor car park (and one of which, with kind permission from the Duke and Duchess of Rutland, uses part of the stunning Castle grounds).
