Sport North Tyneside have this year worked in partnership with Park Run, Active Newcastle, These Girls Can Run, the Rising Sun Country Park and local Running Clubs to host a festive 5km Fun Run event at the Rising Sun Country Park.

The run will take place on Saturday 3rd December, 9:00am – 12:00pm and will kick start the festive spirit in a fun way with this great social event. Anyone can take part in the event and all we ask is you bring your trainers and a smile, but if you do feel inclined you can wear any festive clothing you like to help bring the Christmas spirit to the run.

Our staff will take everyone through a fun warm up before the run itself, then it is over to you to follow the pre-set routes. This years event will be a 5km run with the option of a shorter route for those either running with little ones or not wanting to complete the 5km distance.

There is a small fee for the run but this includes a run pack at the beginning and a hot drink and mince pie at the conclusion of the race.
