13 years ago 2 October, 2004, 13 people gathered in a park in Southwest London and completed a 5km time trial. Little did they know they were making history and became the first ever parkrunners!
13 years later and parkrun is now the biggest running event int he world, taking place in 17 countries, with more than 200,000 people walking, jogging, running or volunteering every week across over 1,200 events- and its still free, for everyone.
To celebrate how the international parkrun community has grown over the last 13 years, we want to collect a photograph of a personalized apricot top from every event in the world.
Simply post your photo on social media with the hashtag #parkrun13 and we'll do the rest.
More #parkrun13 news and stats coming soon. #loveparkrun
23rd September 2017
This week 30 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 4 were first timers and 3 recorded a new Personal Best.
The event was made possible by 7 volunteers: Howard KWAN • Troy MCNAMARA • Yinzhu QUAN • Ross DAWSON • Stephen ADELEKE • Andrea WIDDISON. You did an amazing job and thank you Andrea WIDDISON who stepped in at the last moment to cover for others who were not there today. We really appreciate it.
Thank you to everyone who signed up to volunteer next week. Because of this we WILL be able to run next week. It was looking pretty dismal for a while there! Please remember that many of our regular volunteers leave town during the holidays so if you are still around and can help out, we are looking for someone to hand out finish tokens for next week and still have 6 positions to fill on 7th Oct- International Parkrun Day. If we do not fulfill certain integral positions we cannot run the event for safety reasons. Please comment if you can fill any of these spots :)
