While the calendar was ready to flip to May, in many parts of the country it was still necessary to bundle up on parkrunday. Nonetheless, across the US we set a record for most events held (56), and just over 2,500 of you took part. Let’s take a look at what you got into:
Clermont Waterfront parkrun in central Florida celebrated their 10th anniversary on Saturday. They were the 2nd event to start in the US. Can you name the 1st? Their 11th anniversary is coming up soon.
West Chicago’s favorite free weekly timed 5K, Cornerstone Lakes, held their 3rd event and had a record attendance. We don’t think that’ll be the last time.
Thumbs up if you love your post-parkrun coffee meetups. Looks like a fine morning to enjoy your favorite warm beverage at Coler Mountain Bike Preserve parkrun.
Kensington parkrun is much cheaper than the water park. Treat your family to some exercise and a free shower the next time it rains at your local parkrun.

Yet again our pose of the week comes from Rock Creek Trail parkrun in Portland. Oregon’s favorite free weekly 5K sure has some photogenic participants.
18 people had their barcode scanned for the very first time at Spindle Tree parkrun outside of Houston. They set an attendance record with 65 runners and walkers in total. Way to go!
