Volunteering at Studley parkrun

Volunteers at Studley parkrun One of the best ways of feeling a part of the parkrun community is to help out as a volunteer. Volunteering is a great way to meet fellow parkrunners and help make the event happen each week.

All of our roles are fairly straight forward. Our Run Director will explain everything you need to know on the day. You can also find out more about each role in our Volunteer Summary.

To sign up as a volunteer, just add your name and barcode on the Volunteer Roster when you're next at Studley parkrun. Alternatively, send us an email with your name and barcode number to studley@parkrun.com

You can view our roster for the next month at: Future Roster. When looking at the Future Roster:

  • row heading like this (without a grey background) show roles where we have extra volunteers one week, and so we generally don't need any volunteers to fill these positions

Studley parkrun’s 3rd Anniversary – 23 Feb

It's been 3 years since the start of Studley parkrun. To celebrate our hat-trick, come along on 23 Feb wearing your favourite, most stylish or wackiest hat :)

To help celebrate some of the achievements of the past year, we'll be starting our run briefing at 7:45. There is also another event being held in the park, so the carpark is likely to fill early so please arrive at little earlier this week.

Wear a hat - Studley parkrun's 3rd Anniversary


Christmas 2018 at Studley parkrun

Studley parkrun will be hosting our traditional Christmas Day run again in 2018. Just like a regular Studley parkrun, but this time at 8am on a Tuesday :)

We won't be holding a New Years Day event - though some of our nearby parkruns will be in action, with the option of running a double at two of the events if you're keen.

Check out the official parkrun Christmas Compendium for details of which parkruns are hosting special Christmas and New Years Day events.

If you're heading away for the holidays, you might also like to check out the parkrun Tourist Tool which can help you find your closest parkrun. As a bonus, it can give you the directions on how to get there from where you're staying :)


Christmas day at Studley Parkrun

This year Studley parkrun will be holding an extra event on Christmas Day. This event will start at the usual time of 8am, but will be on a Monday. We will still have our regular runs on Saturday 23rd and 30th of December.

Studley parkrun won't be holding an event on New Years Day. If your keen for an extra parkrun fix, you should try one or two of our neighbouring events as this is the only day in the year you can run a double and have both times recorded!

You can check out the full list of which events are holding Christmas or New Years events at:


1st birthday celebration – 25 February

Venture UNDER THE SEA and help Studley parkrun celebrate our first birthday! 

Discover your inner Nemo as you fish out your fancy (and not-quite-so-fancy) dress outfits and swan alongside the river for a morning run or walk bream full of your fellow parkrun seastars. 

In true parkrun tradition, there will be cake, tasty treats, and more cake on offer. Come along at 7:45 for some awards and thank-yous to help recognise those who've helped make Studley parkrun a great way to start off our weekends :)
