On Saturday 7 October parkrun turns 13 years old and we’re inviting you to celebrate #parkrun13 with us on International parkrun Day

 

13 is an extra special number for us, as that was the number of runners that got together on 2 October 2004 to run Bushy Park Time Trial – the very first parkrun.

Fast forward 13 years and parkrun is now the biggest running event in the 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 it’s still free, for everyone.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news and stats from #parkrun13 over the next few weeks!
