What is Castle Howard parkrun?

It is a free weekly run/jog/walk at your own pace - it's not a race!

When is it?

Every Saturday at 9:00am.

However, there may be occassions where it is cancelled due to a conflicting event or a lack of marshals, please check the Castle Howard website prior to arrival.

Where is it?

The event starts at the Victoria Gate, near to the Stable Courtyard at Castle Howard, York, YO60 7DA.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! However, please register before your first run (you only ever need to register once with parkrun).

Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode along with you, if you forget it you won't get a time.



How fast do I have to be?

We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are welcome at parkrun, we request only one dog per runner and that they must remain on a lead at all times.


We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in the Courtyard Café - please come and join us!
