Parkrun Guides

In 2021, I notched up my 250th parkrun. So far, I’ve run over 60 different parkrun events in 12 different countries. Shortly before the event, I am usually to be found scouring the internet for the answers to the same few questions; what footwear do I need? How much time do I need to factor in for parking and the inevitable pre-run wee? How hard is the course?

Although some of these questions can be answered by checking the parkrun’s website, I am putting the knowledge gained during my parkrun adventures into a (hopefully) handy guide.

Each parkrun guide covers the following categories:

IntroductionWhere and when
Getting ThereHow to get there by car and public transport
