Enjoyed the first Saturday this summer at your go-to local parkrun? Eager to get a glimpse of what went on at our other multiple locations all across the country? Here’s the latest week in pictures!
College Park parkrun
College Park parkrun had a visit from Yorktown Elementary School. As the local tradition goes, the young first-timers got to bang on the gong!
New Jersey’s Evergreen parkrun welcomed visitors from the neighboring Delaware and Raritan Canal parkrun as well as parkrun tourists the UK and Poland. Maybe next time the event will attract moms and dads from the local soccer practice!
Howard Temin Lakeshore Path parkrun
14 people ran, walked, or even skipped the course up in Wisconsin at the event #113, made possible by the team of easygoing and friendly Howard Temin Lakeshore Path parkrun volunteers!
Rock Creek Trail parkrun
There were 32 first-timers at Rock Creek Trail parkrun rocking the course on Saturday. Two of those were visitors from the mother of all parkruns – Bushy parkrun, UK – and as irony has it, they only met each other for the first time in Portland, OR!
Joe Creason parkrun
Another visitor from the UK was spotted multitasking at Joe Creason parkrun, getting credits both for finishing first and for volunteering on a beautiful morning! There were also milestones reached by some of the locals!
Warren County Armco parkrun
Speaking of parkrun tourism, you wouldn’t want to miss the incredible story of Keiko Sunaba, parkrun co-ED for the Main Street Parkrun in Australia and female course record holder at Warren County Armco parkrun, and her local friend Tracy Meats. Check it out on the event’s Facebook page!
Roosevelt Island parkrun
They say Roosevelt Island turns into tropics in summer. Fortunately, the volunteers get to enjoy performing their duties under the lush greenery!
Osborn MetroPark parkrun
The new run director at Osborn MetroPark parkrun welcomed 17 parkrunners on the course and oversaw 4 age category records and a new course record on her first day of job! How is that for the power of motivation!
Heritage Harbor parkrun
Heritage Harbor parkrun also had their share of purple milestones and visitors! Not to forget that their big 6-year anniversary is coming up next weekend!
Little Sugar Creek parkrun
North Carolina’s Little Sugar Creek parkrun is still less than one year old, but they’re striving to keep the attendance above 30. For the event #46 they got some help from Lillie parkrun!
Another squad of Lillie parkrun regulars landed in Livonia, MI, where all the big buzz was. Livonia’s 500th event conveniently coincided with the 11th anniversary of parkrun USA. A great turnout, lots of sunshine and a lively party afterwards – all the right components of parkrun celebration!
Deep Run parkrun
Treats were abound in Richmond, VA, where they too celebrated an anniversary - 6 years of Deep Run parkrun. A colorful balloon arch topped the funnel at the finish line and all the parkrunners got their picture taken under it!
Des Moines Creek parkrun
More cake and more celebration for the 5th birthday of Des Moines Creek parkrun! For an inspirational recap post we also suggest visiting the event’s Facebook page!
Sippo Lake parkrun
As the precipitation streak was finally over, the volunteer crew at Sippo Lake parkrun were lucky to enjoy another sunny Saturday while sporting their cool shades!
