Our parkrun week in pictures, September 14th 2019

The center of the parkrun USA world skewed west this weekend, as we were thrilled to see Byxbee parkrun in Palo Alto, California get off to a great start. Maybe now that we have an event within sight of the Googleplex (really!), even more people will *search for* their local parkrun and *find out* about…

We were so excited this week to welcome the new kid in town: Rock Creek Trail parkrun in Portland, Oregon. The team there has worked for more than two years to bring the event to life, so it’s really special to see it finally hold its first official event. Welcome to the parkrun USA family!…

We are over-indulging for the Labor Day holiday — on parkrun stories. There are just *so many* to share from one of our busiest ever weekends, with over 2,500 taking part across 36 US communities, with many more on the way.     Kaylie’s big day! She started out at Renton parkrun from the very…

Our parkrun week in pictures, August 24th 2019

This week we welcomed a new parkrun to our parkrun USA family - Howard Temin Lakeshore Path parkrun in Madison, WI. We also saw more people volunteering and more people coming back to parkrun than ever before.   We love that we are gaining around 2,000 new registrants per month but it’s especially encouraging to see parkrunners…

Our parkrun week in pictures, August 10th 2019

There were high fives all over the US last Saturday, as THOUSANDS of people ran, walked, or volunteered at their local, or not-so-local, parkrun.   Frankly, we just love being able to say THOUSANDS…after our third-straight week of more than 2,000 runners and walkers. Good thing a few of our upcoming events were out practicing:…

Our parkrun week in pictures, July 20th 2019

Our small steps may have felt like such a giant effort this weekend, with much of the country baked in a heatwave. Through the innovation and determination of our volunteers and participants, we survived the heat, celebrated 50 years since the moon landing and continued the parkrun magic!     A cooler full of ice…
