3 Types of parkrun Holidays

Read time - 4 minutes

One of the most exciting aspects of parkrun tourism is the chance to see a new place – the variety of courses is part of the appeal. Is it hillier than most and therefore a challenge? Is it cross-country or tarmac? And of course, is there a café nearby.

If you’re looking to take your parkrun scenery to the next level, we have the solution: go global! You can join the parkrun family all over the world, and what’s more, it’s easy to combine with an Exodus adventure. So it’s the community spirit you love, but in a far-flung destination. 

Better pack your running trainers.

Cycle ArgusCycling coastal roads

Do you prefer exploring a country on two wheels while pushing your limits?  You can ride the world’s largest cyclosportive set amongst the Cape’s awe-inspiring backdrop on our Cape Argus Cycle Tour

We have spaces every year with rides during the week to warm up for the event.  Why not fly in a day early and take part in the Green Point parkrun in Cape Town?

Taking you past The Cape Town stadium and towards the famous Green Point lighthouse, this is one parkrun which will make you want to re-run the course to take pictures! 

Built in time for the World Cup, the park boasts an incredible space to immerse in the flora that’s endemic to Cape Town and an outdoor labyrinth to get lost in!


Discover St PetersburgState Hermitage Museum

Just like parkrun can help you discover a new part of the UK, travelling with us can help you discover the culture of a brand-new destination. 

On our Moscow to St Petersburg trip you can explore three of Russia’s more fascinating cities – Moscow, St Petersburg and Novgorod. Starting in Moscow, you have the chance to fly in early and have an extra day in this historic city while taking part in one of the parkruns like Gorky Park.

Once a derelict amusement park, Gorky Park has been refurbished and is possibly the only parkrun where you can go on a carousel straight after your 5K! 

The park was the first of its kind and was the blueprint of future parks across the whole Soviet Union. Stretching the banks of the Moscow River, you’ll get a great idea of how local Muscovites relax.


AustraliaManta rays in the Great Barrier Reef

If you’re fascinated by the rainforests and reefs, you can’t beat a long-haul adventure to Australia!  On our Australia holidays you get a full day exploring the Great Barrier Reef, visit the rainforests of Fraser Island and dive or snorkel alongside Manta rays, fish and turtles on Lady Elliot Island. 

Arrive early and start this holiday off with a parkrun to stretch your legs after the flight at Cairns parkrun.

With palm trees, a beach and people as sunny as the weather itself, this is possibly one of the best-located parkruns in the world. Hugging the Cairns esplanade, you could easily combine your run with a tantalising dip in the sea, and a lie on the beach – before and after the run!

These are just three of the types of holidays we offer, meaning that no matter the style of travel you like, we have an adventure for you. All you need to do it decide where you would rather be.
