Christmas Day & New Year’s Day parkrun

Good news! For the first time we have decided to have a Christmas Day parkrun at Black Park. The event will be at 9am as usual, but the cafe will not be open. However, this is obviously dependant on us getting the required number of volunteers to fill all the roles that are required.

We will also be operating as usual on January 1st at 9am.

If you can help out by volunteering at either of these events please email and let us know.


parkrun Restart 24th July 2021

Preparations are currently underway for the return of parkrun at Black Park on 24th July, and we are very much looking forward to seeing you all back with us again each week.

One of the significant changes that we will be making when we restart is to switch to using the parkrun Volunteer app on mobile phones for both timing and scanning. For Covid reasons we cannot supply the phones, so we will be asking all volunteers to install the app onto their own phones, and to ensure they arrive on the day with the app installed and with their phones fully charged. Use of the app will mean we can considerably increase the number of scanning volunteers each week which will help maintain social distancing and decrease the queues. This will however obviously mean that we will need more volunteers each week.

The app is really easy to use and has the added benefits of automatically recording the user as a volunteer and automatically submitting the data directly to parkrun HQ (data usage is minimal). It is available for free from the Apple’s AppStore or from Google’s Play Store. You can see further details by clicking the link below:

Please consider installing this app onto your phone
