Bromley 10th Anniversary 31st August 2019

We are pleased to announce that on 31st August 2019 we will be celebrating 10 years of Bromley parkrun! It will be our 500th event too. We would love as many of you as possible to wear your 25 volunteer tees, or any other purple item.25 tee

We will be running the summer route in reverse, start point is just down from the Hook Farm Lodge Mencap building.



Looking forward

For birthdays and running milestones, we always enjoy the cakes and treats people bring, however for this anniversary we would love as many attendees to bring and donate an item for the Bromley Borough Food Bank charity who will be in the park to receive them. Currently, they are in need of;

  • Deodorant
  • Squash
  • Angel Delight /Jellies
  • Washing up liquid / washing detergent
  • Custard / Rice Pudding
  • Pasta / Cooking Sauces
  • Tinned Vegetables
  • Shampoo

Looking back

Our first event on 29th August 2009, had just 52 runners supported by 10 volunteers, many of whom still attend parkrun, including our Event Director Martin Cunningham.  Perhaps you can find yourself, or a friend you have made though parkrun, in the results or these Flickr albums?

Event cancelled 22nd June 2019

Our annual cancellation due to the Bromley Pageant of Motoring occurs this year on 22nd June 2019. There are plenty of other parkruns nearby, so check out our homepage for the nearest ones if you fancy a bit of tourism. Don’t forget to check that those events are going ahead too. Advance cancellations are published here.


The summer route is back!

Next week, 11th May, we revert to the summer route that crosses the grass. The start is by the children’s playground and the finish is in the usual place alongside pavilion 3. You will pass behind the pavilion on laps 1 and 2. On the route, please keep the orange cones to your right, follow any instructions from the marshals and don’t cut any corners especially where you might encroach on to the football pitches. If you're not planning to run, volunteers are always needed!

We will be providing an extra event on New Year's Day, Tuesday 1st January 2019 at 10.00am. Please note the later start time. The route will be the reverse of our all-tarmac winter route, so we will start on the main path a lttle closer to the children’s playground.
