Hi, great turnout this morning which had an few more runners than usual (61 in total) - which there was no major incidents which was our 411th park run.
Unfortunately this could be our last park run for a while depending on the coronavirus implications.
Weather was dry and quite pleasant but the course is still a bit soggy in places.
There was a few visitors today which also had a couple of first timers to the park run family.


07/03/2020 Run report

Hello Beckton Parkrun, a better turn out of 43 runners compared to last weeks 30 no. runners on very wet day. Today was brighter and dry, course is still boggy and slippery in some places. Recommend to keep your trial shoes on.

We mentioned and supported International Women's Day today and a great turn out.
A couple of great milestones, well done on achieving your 50th Parkrun to Chris Chilton and Wajid Qureshi. Superb.

Also great to see young Kayode Aloe wearing his well deserved 100th Parkrun T shirt.

Congrats to our Lindsey and Vicky for the birth of their baby daughter, Summer.

A number of the recently planted crocuses are now in bloom too.
Great running, keep up the good work.

Run report 29/2/20

Just 30 braves souls faced the rain at Beckton today and became part of history by taking part in the first ever parkruns on this date. Unsurprisingly given the boggy conditions underfoot no pb's were achieved today, but we were happy to welcome all our visitors with 12 of you visiting for the first time. It was especially nice to welcome the Wimbledon Windmilers who stayed and enjoyed a hot drink with us.Thanks as always to all the volunteers who gave up their time on a very wet morning we couldn't do it without you. If you would like to volunteer in the future please speak to us on a Saturday or email Beckton office.
Have a good week all.



Beckton Park Run 408, 22/2/20

Another good run on a windy day. Pretty muddy after Storms Ciara and Dennis. Still, 5 PBs and 20 first timers to Beckton, including 7 from the Baker family, and 2 first ever Park Runners. Well done everyone! And happy birthday Sherry!

hi everyone,

another fantastic parkrun today with 52 runners on a sunny but slightly chilly day - had a couple of parkrun tourists today which was great.
apparently results will be slightly delayed as there are technical issues with their website-results downloaded which may take a while for them to be published.

A great shout to all our regular volunteers for another outstanding job this morning.
