We need you to weed – Wednesday 6th June 5.30pm

We need you to weed ! Yes it is that Himalayan Balsam again which is a thug of a plant that wants to take over the world and snuff out our native plants at Pollok park.
We will be weeding on Wednesday 6th June - meeting at the top of the Burrell car park at 5.30pm - 6pm. Please wear long trousers and sleeves and bring your gardening gloves.
Hope you can make it !


NHS 70 parkrun – special event on 9th June

parkrun and the NHS have joined forces to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS on Saturday 9th June. We hope that parkrunners and volunteers will bring their NHS friends to parkrun and allow them to enjoy the full parkrun experience. If you and your friends would like to wear or bring something silly associated with the NHS that would be great.  Not too many PBs expected that day  especially from those wearing NHS accessories but photos will be taken !!

See you all there!

Pollok parkrun 10th March 2018

The good news is that the snow in Pollok park has melted. The bad news is that the snow in Pollok park has melted making it a bit wet. Who cares ? But whatever it looks like we are on this Saturday 10th March!
Please note that the Servants' hall at Pollok House is being used for Mother's day events this Saturday so unfortunately there will be no parkrun cafe there this week.
See you all bright and early on Saturday - no 9.29 car arrivals please!!

The Beast From The East Wins

We've had to cancel Pollok parkrun on Saturday 3rd March, the paths are just compacted icy snow.

Here's hoping that this is the end of winter and so end of weather cancellations for this year!
