Parking at our event

We're delighted that Glasgow parkrun is so popular, but we need to request:

  • As many of you park outside of the park as possible, and car share where possible.
  • If you have a large group and must use the Burrell carpark, you arrive in plenty of time, and that you park where directed (start from the far end)
  • If you arrive late (after 9.20pm) recognise we may need to close the car park, and you may therefore miss our event.
  • That you are respectful and courteous to our car park marshals at all times.
  • That you pay and display in accordance with the rules of the car park (£1 ticket required for all day parking).

The core team have met on a number of occasions with the Pollok park management team, and we agreed to marshal the Burrell car park on a Saturday morning to their requirements. We have been requested to keep space clear for emergency access, for coaches to park, and for turning space for them to arrive and leave, and also in consideration of the knock-on affect our event has on parking well after our event has finished.

Unfortunately for the last few weeks, our car park marshals have been on the receiving end of unacceptable comments by a small number of individuals that we can no longer tolerate: We think parkrun should be about a friendly and welcoming atmosphere: rude and impatient comments directed at our volunteers, who are doing what has been requested of us in order to continue staging our event, undermine that considerably.

Please help reduce the stress and impact of our event on the park by parking outside of the park, walking/jogging in, or coming by bike/bus/train, or by trying one of the growing number of parkruns in and around Glasgow and the West of Scotland, at Tollcross park, Victoria park, Strathclyde park, Eglinton park and - starting in May - Springburn park in North Glasgow, and Greenock esplanade.

Thanks for your understanding,

Richard Leyton
Glasgow parkrun Event Director
