Another great parkrun week for USA! We had 2,007 finishers across 50 events, with 505 parkrunners helping out in volunteer positions – amazing! Let’s take a look at those pictures:


warren armco county

Here is the first ever Warren County Armco parkrun volunteer crew. They had a great launch with 26 finishers, 18 of whom had never completed a parkrun before.




It was a drizzly one in the pacific northwest, but that didn’t stop 51 finishers and 12 finishers from having a great morning at Perrigo parkrun.


rec plex north


Rec Plex North parkrun had a 50 milestone to celebrate. Congrats Angel an your 50th parkrun finish. That’s awesome!




And off they go at Durham parkrun in North Carolina. In just a few weeks, Durham is getting a sibling. Umstead Park parkrun will be joining our ranks as the fourth parkrun in North Carolina.

Courthouse Lake parkrun near Minneapolis was grateful for a clear course after all this snow the Midwest has been getting! It sure was chilly though.

Livonia parkrun in Michigan also had an exciting milestone to celebrate – Charlie finished his 250th parkrun!


jamaica pond


It was a beautiful, snowy morning at Jamaica Pond parkrun. But we’ve gotta say… as much as we love all of this snow… isn’t it supposed to be spring already?

Down in Florida, this family of 100 clubbers certainly wasn’t worried about snow! Weedon Island Preserve parkrun had excellent weather. We’re jealous!

Heritage Harbor parkrun was beautiful and sunny around the water and we love that parkrun hoodie!

You know by now that we absolutely love out and back courses and College Park parkrun is no exception! What’s better than a mid parkrun high five of encouragement? Not much!

Quite a few milestones to celebrate at Kensington parkrun last weekend! John and Daniel finished 50 parkruns, and Philipp finished 25. Keep it up!

You may not remember, but every parkrunner gets a first timers briefing at their first event, a quick prequel to the bigger run briefing. It’s a way to make sure everyone knows what they’re doing and is familiar with how parkrun works. Whether it’s your first finish at your home event or your 300th finish at a new event, it can’t hurt to get a little refresher. Here’s Roosevelt Island parkrun’s run director making sure everyone’s caught up!


That’s it from us for this week, see you next time to celebrate International Women’s Day!
