About Us

Aldenham parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for participants of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Aldenham Country Park, Aldenham Road, Elstree, Hertfordshire, WD6 3BA. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed event and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, regardless of age or gender, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to run, jog or walk together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in one of the two cafes on site at Aldenham Country Park. The Clock House Kiosk serving a selection of refreshments and snacks such as ice creams, coffees and sandwiches has benches outside. Rustic Rhubarb offers a sit down meal with both outdoor and indoor seating serving up all day breakfasts and homemade cakes - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other parkrunners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.
