Dungannon 061018

Facilities

This parkrun is located on the outskirts of Dungannon town and has a reasonably sized car park for those that decide to drive to the event. There is a bus service within the town that brings you close to the park entrance. There are toilets available next to the cafe in the park, but no changing facilities.

Course

The course starts in a clearing in the middle of the park, which is a few minutes walk from the car park. Make sure, therefore, that you leave enough time to get to the start line. The course is map up of two laps on a mostly paved surface, though there are some gravel patches. The course is undulating, with two relatively sharp climbs at the back end of the course – a great opportunity for some hill training. The park itself is very nice, with a pond, lawns and lots of mature trees. With so many trees it is especially nice this time of year.

Coffee

There is a cafe next to the car park where parkrunners can gather after the run for some well earned coffee and cake.

X Factor

This is a relatively new parkrun and it quite busy. This shows the enduring popularity of parkrun as an athletic outlet for all members of the community and long may it continue.
