Join PGRC at New Year’s College Park parkrun!

Season’s greetings Runners!

This New Year’s Day,  join us at one of our favorite running events in the area!

College Park parkrun will, once again, host a NYD special, so come out on Monday, January 1, 2024 at 9:00 AM for a FREE 5K!

If you haven’t been to parkrun before, you’ll be in for a treat! This fantastic community event gathers runners and walkers (and barkers) of all ages for a 5K along the beautiful Paint Branch Trail. Kids, strollers, and dogs are welcome. Just make sure you register on their website beforehand to receive a barcode (and your results). Normally this event takes place every Saturday (come out for a teaser on December 30), but every once in a while we get an extra parkrun during the week.

Not ready to run the course yet, there are volunteer opportunities available! You can see which positions are still open by going to this link: Send an email to to volunteer.

If you New Year’s resolution is to get more active or more involved with the community, this a great way to get started. Head to their websiteFacebook Page, or Instagram page to get more information. 

Hope to see you there!
