The Penrhyn parkrun is a 5km run around the gardens - it's you against the clock! It takes place every Saturday morning at 9am come rain or shine.

The run is organised by a great team of parkrun volunteers. More information about parkrun and the course at Penrhyn Castle can be found on the parkrun website www.parkrun.org.uk/penrhyn/
