Acton junior parkrun No. 1, Sunday 25th June

What a great turnout for our inaugural run last Sunday. 47 little legs ran the course, of which 25 were 1st timers, including visitors from San Francisco & Durham.

As mentioned in the briefing we couldn't have started this new parkrun without the support from Heathrow Community Fund, East Acton Ward & West 4 Harriers running club, whose generous donations enabled us to raise the set up funds. A MASSIVE THANK YOU! Similarly there wouldn't be a run without the support from our high vis team, so an extra BIG thank you to Ailsa DRAKE, Andrea COOK, Andrew LAWRENCE, Arlene GALLAGHER, Clare WALKER, Dave COBB, Ed JACKSON, Heidi VICKERY, Jason DRAKE, Kate WARD, Kay LYDALL, Olivia HOOKE, Richard HOOKE, Sinead GALBRAITH, Sophia COOK & Stewart GALBRAITH.

Congratulations go to Kieran Kenny (8:23), Ben Abbotts (8:33) & Joshua Whitelam (8:36) for being the 1st three home, & to Lilian Cobb for being the 1st girl back (9:26).

See you back there on Sunday & don't forget if you'd like to volunteer please email




Countdown to our inaugural run on Sunday 25th

After a year in the making and a successful trial last Sunday - helped by the great weather and an enthusiastic warm up - we really are on countdown, with less than 10 sleeps until go live!

With a few tweaks and a bit more admin, we'll be ready to go... and now it's over to you. For children to take part, simply register, print off their barcode and join us on the 25th, and for adults (or children over 14), please help us out by volunteering, simply email:  And, if you're lucky... we'll bake some cakes, so please join us for coffee after too.
