Description & History

parkrun is a not-for-profit organisation which organises free, weekly, timed 5k runs. There are over 190 events in the UK, but the number is growing on a weekly basis. We have 36 events in London in some beautiful parks and open spaces. parkruns are organised and led by local enthusiastic volunteer teams, which include people from all walks of life.

Each parkrun has a variety of roles available from timekeeper to marshal, all of which are important to ensuring we have a successful run.

Our runs are not races; the most important aspect is the social and friendly atmosphere which is inclusive of all abilities. Experience is not essential as we are happy to show you the ropes and provide any necessary training.

We want everyone to feel welcome. If you would like to help and be part of this team please contact us.
