Every parkrun in the world is run in a similar way, so that no matter what part of the world you travel to, when you find a parkrun you will know how it works, what to expect, what day it's on, and depending on the climate of that area what time it starts. Hot climate parkruns start at 7am. Temperate climate parkruns start at 8am. Cold climate parkruns start at 9am. But they are all always on Saturday, every week, everywhere parkruns are held. (unless an event gets cancelled that week for safety reasons)
- The volunteers who run the events would like to get on with their weekends; by starting early, they can (with luck) have the results for their parkrun sorted by lunchtime.
- Many runners appreciate the opportunity to start their weekend on a social and active note before breakfast.
- We also want to avoid clashing with the many club events that happen on Saturday afternoons.
