Happy New Year – New Years Day parkrun

Wow – what a start to the year.

A record attendance in near perfect running conditions, made that little bit extra special by being piped away at the start.

In total, 308 people ran, jogged and walked our famous course, of whom 56 were first timers and 47 recorded new Personal Bests.

We have had so many positive comments on our New Year’s run (thank you all so much) and summed up perfectly by Sylvia Mulholland – “Loved that this morning – piper, drummer, coffee, cakes and lovely volunteers, thanks x”

A huge thanks to our amazing volunteers (Jacqueline COWAN, Pamela PARKER,  Katy SMITH, David MURPHY, Emma MAIN, Brian MAIN, Alyson CONNELL, Aidan CONNELL, Hugh MCALOON, Heather ANGELOPOULOS, Beth MAGUIRE, Alisha LAURIE, Kelly LUDWIG, Denise MCCANN, Mark GRANT, Judy HOUSTON and Kenneth HOUSTON) and to you - our amazing runners, joggers and walkers who make Tollcross parkrun so special each week.

On behalf of Tollcross parkrun, we wish you all a very happy New Year.

Tollcross Parkrun Core Team

Hi everyone,

Every parkrun has a core team of volunteers who run and co-ordinate the event each week. Here at Tollcross we have had a few changes recently and thought it was time to let you know who is behind your event every week!

Event Directors - Emma Craig and Fiona Greig
Run Director - Ken Eccleson
Run Director - Ross Crawford
Run Director - Helen Wilkinson
Run Director - Jacqueline Cowan
Run Director - Stephen Leonard
Core Volunteers - Alisha Laurie, Ross Greig

We would like to welcome Fiona Greig as new Co-Event Director with Emma as well as some great new Run Directors and a special welcome to Alisha, who started volunteering with us for her Duke of Edinburgh award and has stayed!

These guys are the main contacts, but we still need all our wonderful volunteers each week, so we hope that you come to tollcross to run and volunteer when you can! We can't thank you enough for your contribution to make our parkrun happen.

If you would like to find out more about the core team and what we do, email tollcrossoffice@parkrun.com


New Years Day parkrun

We are delighted to announce we will be staging a parkrun on New Years Day at 11:00.


Event Cancelled – Saturday 4th August

There is much excitement around Tollcross at the moment, in the build up to the European Championships - but with all the anticipated swimming crowds coming through the park around the same time as we would be on, we have taken the decision to cancel this week's Tollcross parkrun, Saturday 4th August.

Sorry to anyone who is disappointed - we are too - but we just thought it was best, given traffic restrictions, parking in the area and no cafe! But this does give you time for a spot of tourism. There are loads of other great events around Glasgow, and we will see you on Saturday 11th August, 09.30am as usual! 



Tollcross parkrun will not take place on Christmas Day
