Week in pictures: November 5


It’s been unseasonably warm across the eastern US throughout October and some locations had temps in the 70s (22C) for parkrun on the first Saturday in November. Other locations had rain, and some experienced their first snow. But you know what? Our bodies are built to move in all types of weather. Let’s take a peek at the pics of the week:


11-5 College Park


Our volunteer photographers are the best. Shout out to one of the volunteer photographers at College Park parkrun last Sat. Consider helping out your local parkrun as a photographer one week. Email your event team or just ask someone on Saturday.


11-5 Winthrop Trailhead


Some of our first snow in the fall/winter of 2022 goes to Winthrop Trailhead parkrun in Washington State near the Canadian border. Expect to see many snow pics from this event all winter and into the spring. Looks lovely!


11-5 B&A Trail


We can always look forward to some of the happiest volunteer group photos at Baltimore & Annapolis Trail parkrun. It’s hard to fake those smiles. You can get that kind of feeling for free just by helping out at your local parkrun.




This parkrunner at Little Sugar Creek Greenway parkrun in Charlotte is showcasing how our skin is waterproof. Try a parkrun in the rain to get both a free smile and shower.




Delaware & Raritan Canal parkrun in Somerset, NJ hosted a slew of tourists visiting for the New York Marathon on November 6.  D&R Canal parkrun had a record 118 runners and walkers on Saturday. Kudos to all of our volunteers going the extra mile (or kilometer) for our parkrun tourists.




“I know it was good weather for a PB and you didn’t get it, but you didn’t spend any money and you also saw a cool bird.” We don’t know what was said between these two parkrunners at Fletchers Cove parkrun in DC but we can pretend can’t we?




Skye and their owner had a blast at Osborn MetroPark parkrun in Sandusky, OH. You and your dog can benefit from a walk/run/jog in a local park. They’ll get plenty of pets and belly rubs, and you’ll get a free workout. What’s not to love?




We don’t want to be perceived as having an east coast bias this week but we had to feature both of our New Jersey parkruns. This is Evergreen parkrun in Green Township, NJ which held their ninth event this past Saturday.




Nothing better than seeing families enjoying themselves at parkrun.  You get to do this every Saturday for free. If parkrun has been a positive thing for you or your family, submit you parkrun story here and who knows, maybe yours will the one that provides someone with the courage to walk or run their first 5K.




Shout out to first-time run director Deb at Courthouse Lake parkrun in Chaska, MN. Your local parkrun is run entirely by volunteers. Reach out and see how you can help in the future. Being the run director is more fun than work and you’ll feel good knowing you facilitated another free weekly timed 5K in your community.


11-5 Charleston


Hello/Goodbye from Charleston parkrun in West Virginia. Until next week!

Week in pictures: November 26

Two parkruns in three days? No way! Thanks to our extra parkrunday last Thursday on Thanksgiving, parkrunners around the country were spoiled with another event just two days later. We had most of our regular events going forward, with 2,012 finishers across 51 events, helped out by 551 superhero volunteers. Let’s take a look at…


Bring on 1,000 parkruns

Have you ever wondered who has completed the most parkruns, or who has the most volunteer credits? You’re about to meet Darren Wood and Nicki Clark!   Some might be surprised to learn that neither parkrunner was at the first ever parkrun event back in 2004. But ever since Darren and Nicki started, they have never…
