GOAL Mile Entry

Entry fee for the GOAL Mile is whatever you want to donate. Just turn up and put however much you want to donate into the bucket at the venue

Run, jog or walk. A mile is four laps of the track...and another 9.4m. If that's a bit long for you and you drop out after a lap or too, don't worry about it ....nobody will be counting!

Parkruns - 9:30am Christmas Day, December 25th
