Every Saturday at 9.30am walkers, runners and dog walkers head on a 5km timed loop of the gardens starting and finishing at Mount Stuart House. Parkrun is open to walkers and runners of all abilities and its completely free! A sociable event, each week runners and volunteers meet in the Courtyard Cafe (open 9.30am-11.00am) to enjoy a post-run coffee, cake and a chat.
Visitors should register with parkrun before their first run, for further information please see the dedicated Mount Stuart parkrun page. Parking is available at the staff car park close to the main house, please follow event signage.
Parkrun is run by a dedicated team of volunteers and is not operated by Mount Stuart Trust.
