Party in the Park 2018

20 May 2018

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Party in the Park 2018 is now open for public entries!  This annual fun run is organised by Linwood Active with the aim of raising funds to provide safe and up to date play parks for all of the community to enjoy.


This fun event takes place in Linwood's Kintyre Park on Sunday 20 May offering a choice of two races, a 3k run at 1pm and a 1k run at 2pm.  Both races start from Kintyre Park before heading out on to the cycle path and back to the Park. 


Children must be aged 5 and over to take part in the 3k run and all children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult runner.  The 1k is open to all ages including babies in buggies and toddlers, and again all children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.  Dogs are allowed to enter provided they are on a lead!


The online price for the 3k run is £5 and the online price for the £1k run is £3.


There are just 200 places available in total.  If all 200 places are not filled online we will accept race-day entries however they will be allocated on a first come first served basis and will be a higher price than online entries.  We would therefore encourage everyone to sign up early online to avoid disappointment.  


The organisers are being assisted by a number of voluntary marshals.  The safety of all is paramount and it is a condition of entry that participants must follow the instructions of the marshals.  There will also be non official time keepers.  


Race Numbers to be collected on the day from the Gazebo at the entrance of Kintyre Park from 11am onwards.  The will be a pre-race warm up at 12.45pm.  The race start time is 1pm for the 3k run and 2pm for the 1k run. There will also be entertainment within the park before and after the races including games, food and inflatables for all to enjoy.  


In the event of postponement we will try to notify competitors by email but please check the Linwood Active facebook page for any updates.  We will not give refunds if runners are unable to make the new date.


We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 20th May!
