Belvoir Castle parkrun

Belvoir Castle has been confirmed as the latest Park Run location.

“We are proud and excited to announce the launch of the Belvoir Castle parkrun! Parkruns are free, weekly, timed 5km runs, taking place every Saturday morning, all year round, at 9am.

“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).

parkruns are set to return nationally on 24 July 2021. Whether the Belvoir one will start on that date is yet to be announced.
