Come and join in. It is a great way to kick off the weekend!
All parkruns are free to take part in and everyone, regardless of age or ability is welcome (under 11s must run with a responsible adult). You can run, jog or walk the undulating 5K course at your own pace; run individually, with a friend or with your family. Well trained dogs are welcome as long as they run on a lead.
Parkrun asks that you do register online in advance at and then you can take part in any parkrun whenever you like. Track your time from week to week and set your own personal goals.
Parkrun is organised by volunteers, who an amazing job and they are always looking for more people to the team helping to make surethat every week is a success for all.
The route:
Parkrun at Penrhyn Castle consists of two big loops and two small loops around the castle.
  • The big loop heads off down the main drive then swings right along a track that runs up to the walled garden. From there, stay on the track which runs up past the brick stable and along to the main castle entrance.
  • The small loop swings right at the main castle entrance, down past the walled garden then up past the brick stable and along to the main castle entrance and the finish.
  • Remember to complete each of the loops twice!

Post-run, reward yourself, put your feet up and enjoy coffee and cake in Penrhyn's tea room.  

 “Parkrun at Penrhyn has something for everyone: families, walkers, joggers and regular runners. You go at your own pace and only challenge yourself – it’s like your own private 5K race.  It is a really friendly and welcoming event.  And it’s free!” - Cath H, a parkrun regular
