Extra parkruns on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day!!

I know, some of you may think it is really far too early to be planning Christmas!! But surely never too early to let you know about extra parkruns!! We are therefore pleased to confirm that as well as our usual Saturday 5k events at 9am we will once again be hosting extra events on Christmas Day (Tuesday 25th December) and New Year's Day (Tuesday 1st January). Both these events will start at 9am. We will of course need volunteers on these days too!!

For the really keen amongst you, don't forget that you can get two, yes two, run credits on New Year's Day - Cranleigh will be hosting a parkrun at 10.30am which should provide plenty of time to finish Guildford parkrun, get your barcode scanned and get to Cranleigh ready to do it all again!! Yes, we really are spoiling you!!


315 Guildford parkrun -thought we’d say it with photos this week! Thank you Jane Rostant for words and photos!

Another gloriously sunny morning in Surrey for our 315th Guildford Parkrun.  Run Director Nicky Hack welcomed 409 runners and our brilliant volunteers.

Honorable mention also to Oliver Jones running his 200th parkrun - you owe us tea and cake next week for not mentioning this!!  Look at Nikki Simpson who demonstrated the joy of parkrun!

It was great to see a large number of first timers, including Ian Worley who had enjoyed his first ever parkrun. Ian said, "it was great" and he'll be returning next week for a PB.

Fantastic encouragement as ever from our lovely volunteers - it makes such a difference when you are struggling round the course.  Here are some of our finest in action:

Bernard Parke - encouraging as always!

Please remember to volunteer as parkrun is brought to you by our team of volunteers and it couldn't happen without you. So, please email in to; guildfordhelpers@parkrun.com

See you all next week for another amazing Saturday morning.


Some missing results today

Unfortunately we had a problem with one of our scanners today and it has lost about the first 7 mins of results which is up to about position 95. If you find you are missing a result then please mail in to guildfordhelpers@parkrun.com & we will add you in.

Volunteer Co Ordinators

After what seems like a life time probably to most of you, I have handed over the role of Volunteer Co Ordinator to Paul Tatler, Will Bolter and Katherine Portman.

I am very grateful that you've put up with my volunteer request emails and haven't blocked me from your inbox!

Thank you to Paul, Will and Kat for taking on this role, please love them!

I really have appreciated all your offers of help with filling the rota and for week in and week out putting up with me!

Thank you very much.

Co Event Director



The Daisy Chain Cafe is closed this Saturday, so sadly no post run food or drink available at the Wey Valley Bowls Club.

Obviously there is the Spectrum or bring your own cakes, entirely up to you!
