Donations to parkrun UK

We need your support

Building and maintaining the parkrun UK family of events costs money. Our goal at parkrun UK is to ensure that every parkrun event that we create will continue to provide free runs to their communities forever. To ensure this, we set aside sponsor income for this purpose. Sponsor income funds the organisation, allowing us to invest in improving the technology and to employ the team bringing you these events.

The development of the parkrun family requires additional income. We call this the “new event fund”. Wherever possible we look to secure these funds from local councils however, there are still many new events that can not afford the start up costs. The “new event fund” allows us to create new events where there are no local funds available.

We endeavour to match every donation to the parkrunner making the donation. Where we are able to match the parkrunner, we allocate 85% of the donation to their home run and the remaining part to the “new event fund”. Where we can’t match the parkrunner, then this donation is allocated to parkrun “new event fund”.

When donating, the donator can provide a comment informing us where they wish the donation to be allocated. Also, for every donation made, we provide an email confirming our actions. Should there be a need, then the allocation of the donation can be corrected later.

parkrun is open and transparent. We publish every donation and withdrawal here.

parkrun is a not-for-profit organisation. All income directly supports our existing events and is used for the development of parkrun. parkrun UK has no shareholders.

Please note: We are currently updating our donations recording and reporting system. Please bear with us whilst we bring the new reports live. If you have any questions, please get in touch via support.parkrun.com

Thank you for your donations
