We’re delighted to introduce local parkrun clubs on Strava at more than 800 parkruns globally. Almost every parkrun now has a free digital home to share news, grow its community and keep the whole gang motivated to get their next PB.
Strava and parkrun have been working together for years, and their new clubs features might be the best reason yet for every parkrunner to give them a try.
You can use Strava to track your parkruns with your iPhone, Android or GPS watch. But Strava is much more than a tracking app – it’s a place for people like us to connect, stay motivated and have some fun. You can compare your parkun times with your previous efforts and other Strava athletes, meet runners in your area and keep track of your fitness over time.
And if you join your local parkrun club, you can stay connected to your fellow parkrunners every weekend, get updated with parkrun announcements and discussions, and organise workouts and meetups outside of the usual Saturday 5k. It’s the whole community you’re a part of, in one place, for free. It’s essentially the social network for parkrunners.
Strava and parkrun share a commitment to serve runners, build communities and inspire athletes to achieve their goals, whatever they may be. The new parkrun clubs take that commitment a big step further. We’d love to see you join your local club and let us know what you think.
If you’re already a Strava member, after clicking this link all you’ll need to do is search for your parkrun club. If you’re not a member you’ll be prompted to download the app and join, then you can search for your parkrun by clicking “Find Club” on the Android app or “Explore” on IOS app.

Prepared to accept that COVID-19 could interrupt these plans at any point, they didn’t expect to have the good fortune to enjoy parkrun’s return in the Northern Territory…
On Saturday we welcomed back Cape Pembroke Lighthouse parkrun, in the Falkland Islands, and all three events in Australia’s Northern Territory, representing another positive moment in the gradual return of parkrun events around the world. It was great to see the unofficial parkrun podcast, With Me Now, live-streaming from Nightcliff and Palmerston parkruns. If…
