week in pictures: May 20

Spindle Tree 1


It was a beautiful spring morning across parkrun USA, although the temperatures have started to creep upwards. Even though we missed an attendance record, there was a wonderful turn out of folks eager to get moving and enjoy some parkrun community.




The folks at Aspen parkrun welcomed their first parkrun tourist from Australia. Fun fact – this event in Colorado has the highest altitude course than any other at almost 8,000 feet above sea level!




Lots to smile about at Creekside parkrun. They celebrated a junior participant joining the parkrun 10 Club and a dedicated helper joining the volunteer 50 Club! Well done!


Delaware and Raritan Canal


The parkrun tourists at Delaware and Raritan Canal parkrun spanned the globe coming in from France, South Africa, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Remember, your parkrun barcode is good at all events around the world!


Depot Park


The milestone shirts had a strong showing at Depot Park parkrun. They nearly had triple-digit attendance, including someone completing their very first 5K!


 Durham NC


A couple 100 milestone shirts were spotted at Durham NC parkrun. They were there supporting a participant in achieving his own 100th parkrun milestone! Welcome to the black shirt club. Be sure to keep track of your milestones in your parkrun profile at www.parkrun.com/profile




Even cloudy days at Evergreen parkrun make for a great parkrun. This event in Green Township, New Jersey had one of the cooler temperatures Saturday.


Fort Ward


More thumbs-ups and smiles at Fort Ward parkrun this Saturday. Not pictured are the sunbathing sea lions spectating the event.


Howard Temin Lakeshore Path


It was a banner morning at Howard Temin Lakeshore Path parkrun, where fun was had by all who attended.


Jamaica Pond


The joy was palpable despite the chance of rain at Jamaica Pond parkrun for another parkrunday!


Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation


Participants at parkrun tend to live long and prosper as shown by this parkrunner at Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation parkrun.


Rec Plex North 1


The theme continued at Rec Plex North parkrun with this parkrunner giving the familiar thumbs-up with a great smile. Be aware, the run report noted the need for bug spray as Florida looks toward summer.


Spindle Tree


The art of taking a selfie while parkrun is a special skill demonstrated here at Spindle Tree parkrun.


Third Creek Greenway


Over in Knoxville, Tennessee participants at the Third Creek Greenway parkrun enjoyed a great day.


Weedon Island Preserve


No one finishes last at parkrun, thanks to our tail walker volunteers. They are always encouraging like this Weedon Island Preserve parkrun volunteer.


That was our parkrun week in pictures, we hope to see you out on the course this Saturday!
