Newport has Tredegar House Country Park Club Site literally on the same site, while Cardiff Blackweir has one which is a nice warmup job of about a mile away.

There's a caravan site at Tamar Lakes. Sadly, it isn't accessible for long motorhomes.

If you are looking in Northern Ireland - Larne, Dungannon, Rostrevor and Castlewellan have caravan sites right beside the course. Portrush has a lot within a mile or so.

So this weekend we're off caravanning in Ashbourne in Derbyshire. :-)
Looking at the parkrun map there appears to be a exclusion zone around Ashbourne where there are no parkruns!

I know there was a plan to set a parkrun up in Ashbourne pre-pandemic - looks like it hasn't yet happened (unless it's their inaugural event this weekend! ;-) )

The nearest is Markeaton, towards Derby - does anyone have any strong views or other recommendations please? (I'd rather not crawl out of bed *too* early!)

I found this whilst googling - which maybe ought to be on the "Things that grind your gears" forum for its randomised use of Park run, park run, before finally in the last paragraph, getting to parkrun! (Oh, and the picture of cyclists and a jogger enjoying Shipley park. The "Jogger" leaning on the fence!)

I was going to suggest Bakewell, but I see it's still not back, unfortunately.

Exmouth - there's a small campsite on Maer Lane which is about half a mile from the beach which allows small motor homes.
Many motorhomes Park up along the Esplanade or in Maer Road car park.

Got something to say?

I'd like to do a bit more parkrun touristing, but also fitting it in with our motorhome travels...
