As parkruns are held on Saturdays, organisers chose to continue holding them on the big day at Eaton Park, Colney Lane and Catton Park in Norwich, the Walks in King's Lynn, Abbey Meadows in Thetford, Gorleston Cliffs and Great Yarmouth North Beach .

People taking part donned festive outfits from Santa hats to Santa suits.

At Eaton Park, although the parkrun was taking place in its usual venue, organisers announced that participants would not be running the normal route but using their traditional route instead. 

Almost 550 people took part in the run at Eaton Park and the winner was Barclay Izzard in a time of 15 minutes nine seconds.
