Saturday 30 December 2017 and Monday 1 January 2018

Saturday, 30 December 2017 - come along and walk / jog / run - see it as a warm up for......

Monday, 1 January 2018 - yes, we are really going to be up and ready for a 9:00am start - what better way to start 2018.

The post run beverages will be at the Spectrum on Saturday as Wey Valley Bowls club is shut.

Obviously, if you are not running and want to volunteer that is so very acceptable!

Once again, thank you to everyone who has made Guildford parkrun such a wonderful community event.

Saturday, 23 December 2017 - It's Festive Fancy Dress if you can for this Saturday's parkrun.  Tinsel, bauble, inflated costumed runners / walkers and volunteers - we look forward to seeing you all.  Post run drinks will be at the Spectrum if you fancy, as the Wey Valley Bowls Club team are having a well earned rest.

Monday, 25 December 2017 - 9:00am - Yes, we are back for a Christmas Day parkrun.  Wear festive clothes or just a Christmas hat (by that I don't mean JUST a hat) - still looking for volunteers, so if you can help please email in.

Monday, 1 January 2018 - 9:00am - 
Start 2018 with a parkrun - say what?  Yes, 9:00am New Year's Day, we are on (volunteers still needed).  Some hardy runners will be attempting 2 parkruns, the second parkrun starting at 10:30am, including Cranleigh and Alice Holt.

Finally, thank you to all volunteers and runners who have contributed to making Guildford parkrun, the only place to be on a Saturday morning.  We wish you all a very happy, healthy and safe Christmas.


Nicky, Julie and The Core Team.





Food Bank, Fancy dress and festive hats!

Thinking of local people who are struggling this Christmas, we will be collecting food for the North Guildford Food Bank on Saturday 16th and Saturday 23rd December. If you would like to contribute, please bring your donations to the start/finish area or drop them off at the Wey Valley Bowls Club.  The following donations would be very welcome:

Long life fruit juice
Sugar 1kg and 500g
Porridge oats - NOT cereal
Ketchup and mayonnaise
Pasta sauce
Puddings - sponge, whips or jellies
Household products - bleach, non bio washing liquid or powder, fabric conditioner, washing up liquid, multi purpose cleaner and scourer pads
Shampoo and conditioner
Shower gel and soap

They do NOT need baked beans, soup, pasta, rice, tea, cereal or tinned fish as they have an ample supply of these for the moment!

Thank you in advance!!

Also, on Saturday, 23 December please feel free to dress up in Festive Fancy Dress - jingle your way around Stoke Park.  Don't forget if you want to run on Christmas Day YOU CAN!!! Festive hats / jumpers / tinsel....all starting at 9:00am!  If you can't run and would like to volunteer, please email in.

Nicky, Julie & The Core Team




Could we just have a moment of your time.

The Rangers who work for the Council and look after Stoke Park and the park's facilities, have asked that we do not put rucksacks, bags, jackets, water bottles etc, in front of the doors situated behind the barcode scanning tables. We need to keep this area completely free of everything!

We do have the changing room which is spacious where you can store, hang up and keep your belongings whilst you run/walk (this door is kept open right until the last piece of equipment is packed away).

Obviously you leave all items in the changing room at your own risk.

We are fortunate we have the changing room available, so please help us to keep up good relationships with The Rangers by not obstructing the other doors.

If you read this, and on Saturday see runners/walkers draping items of clothing over the door handles, or propping bags up against the doors, please, just mention the above, or find a member of our brilliant Core Team who will explain why!

Thank you for your help.


Extra parkruns on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day

We know it's only just October and the clocks are yet to go back, but we like to plan ahead here to make the most of our parkrun year. We are therefore pleased to confirm that as well as our usual Saturday 5ks at 9am we will once again be hosting extra events on Christmas Day (Monday 25th December) and New Year's Day (Monday 1st January). Both these events will start at 9am. We will of course need volunteers on these days too! More information to follow!
