Week in Pictures: August 19

Jamaica Pond POW

Did you know we’ve broken our attendance record here at parkrun USA 7 times already in 2023? Our PB was beaten again on Saturday as 3,711 of you walked, ran or jogged at 62 different events from coast to coast. Momentum is building across the country in big cities and small communities alike, and we’ve got the pics to prove it




The team at Exploration Place parkrun in Wichita welcomed 364 runners and (mostly) walkers on Saturday setting a new US record (by 1). Way to go on making parkrun such a huge hit in the plains!




Don’t you love a Run Director selfie? Sure you do. We’re nuts about our Run Directors all over the country. Thanks to all of you who wore the blue vest this week like this RD at Delaware & Raritan Canal parkrun.




144 runners and walkers got that finish line feeling at Byxbee parkrun this week in Palo Alto. Did you know Byxbee is the only parkrun in California? Want to do something about that? Get your team together, find a suitable location, and reach out here.




Our pals at Des Moines Creek parkrun outside of Seattle held their 200th event on Saturday and a dairy good time was had by everyone.




If you’re visiting Lake Erie or Cedar Point Amusement Park this summer, be sure to stop in at Osborn Metropark parkrun on Saturday morning.


Depot Park 8-19


It’s back to school at the University of Florida in Gainesville and Depot Park parkrun was bustling on Saturday. Good luck this year!




What time is it? Time for Evergreen parkrun. 9:00 in Green Township, NJ.




34 runners and walkers made it happen at Creekside parkrun on Saturday. How many of North Carolina’s parkruns have you been to?




It’s back to school as well for the Badgers of the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Lucky for them, Howard Temin Lakeshore Path parkrun is there for them every Saturday morning.




It’s back to school for the Terps at the Uni– you get the drift. College Park parkrun was among the many events enjoying a bigger turnout over the weekend. But did you know only 11 Americans per million finished a parkrun on Saturday? We’ve got a lot of room to grow!




Want all of the parkrun but a little less sweat in the summer? Sign up to tail walk this week at your local parkrun. Everyone’s welcome to join the party in the back at Rec Plex North parkrun in the FL panhandle.




Thanks to our volunteer photographers like the ones at Perrigo parkrun for giving us the opportunity to show off parkrun from coast to coast.




What time is it? Time for Livonia parkwalk. 8:00 in the summer, 9:00 in the winter. As always, check the event website before you head out the door




Just a few of the 30 volunteers across Texas on Saturday. Spindle Tree parkrun outside of Houston is one of 3 events in the Lone Star State.




What is your method for folding up your new pop-up sign? Do you just carry it on your head until next week? Fine by us. Either way, we wanna see. Tag us in your pics and videos of you folding up your sign next week!




This special pup was enjoying the shade at Sippo Lake parkrun on Sat




Congrats to this junior parkrunner who achieved their volunteer 10 milestone at Roosevelt Island DC parkrun. And congrats to you if you hit a new milestone this weekend.




Ta ta for now from Merrymeeting parkrun. See you Saturday!
