Course Description

Penrith parkrun is an anti-clockwise two laps of the Frenchfield Sports Centre site. The route is in the main flat and is mostly grass with a small element of tarmac. Starting outside the pavilion the route heads north and follows the perimeter of the site before being led through an area of trees and vegetation. The route follows the river bank with the River Eamont on your right before you turn on to another area of trail like terrain. The route then heads on to a tarmac surface for 250metre before leading back on to grass. A switchback takes you back towards the Pavilion and the second lap commences. The finish is 100metres beyond the pavilion. The site can get wet in part during inclement weather


There is ample free parking on the site. The pavilion offers toilets, changing rooms and hot showers if required. There are disabled toilets and changing rooms. Please Note that the Frenchfield Sports Centre is a ‘No Dogs Allowed’ site which is enforced.
