Camperdown parkrun Run Report – 28th August 2021

First of all, I would like to say a massive congratulations to all runners, joggers and walkers this week and a huge thank you to this week fabulous 19 volunteers!

Anyway, hello, I'm Kieran and I am this week's run report writer. This was a nice week of tourism for me as my home parkrun is in Kirkcaldy, Fife and it was lovely getting to do Camperdown parkrun today! Overall I found the route fun, the hill was challenging, however, I along with an amazing 276 other parkrunners managed to power on and tackle the hill!

Anyway on to this week's statistics: This week 277 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom an amazing 20 people were first-time parkrunners and for 28 others this was their first parkrun at Camperdown! I would like to say a huge congratulations to the whopping 52 people who recorded new Personal Bests! Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.

At Camperdown parkrun today was had quite a lot of tourists from different places across the UK, a few that I did pick up on is people saying they had travelled from Glasgow, Livingstone, Montrose, Fife and London.

One thing that I always find nice about going to different parkruns is getting to adventure all the different routes. Like I said earlier I did enjoy today's run and it was really nice getting to adventure up to Dundee for this morning parkrun!

Once again, I would like to say a massive thank you to this weeks 'Hi-Viz' hero's:

John MILL • Barbara Mary BROWN • Palm GUNSTONE • Kirsten WEBSTER • Romelei Adrian LAUREZO • David RODLEY • Heidi FETTES • Susan VAN SAS • Fiona HUTCHINSON • Coreen POW • Elspeth FINCH • Douglas STIRLING • Beth MCDONOUGH • Shona JOHNSTON • Kenneth HART • Kieran FORSYTH • Andrew CHALMERS • Duncan RHYND • Heike GLESER

parkruns really couldn't go ahead without you, thank you all!

And that's all for this week folks, I hope you have amazing weeks and remember to be up bright and early next Saturday!
Until then #dfyb!


We’re back.

We can confirm that Camperdown parkrun is back up and running on the 14th August.

More details to follow.


Festive Camperdown parkruns

Hi everyone,

We will be holding parkrun at Camperdown straight through the festive period, as usual.

This year Christmas day has to be at 09:30, so those presents will have to wait until after the main business of the day - parkrun! Secret Santa details to come!

New Year - we're 09:30, giving you plenty of time to get to a second parkrun for the double! (Work out your parkrun double options here:

Thanks everyone!

Runs directors.


Camperdown event 364

Another awesome parkrun day successfully completed.

Today we had 200 runners, including 15 first timers.

Thanks so much to our fabulous parkrun volunteering team, without whom the event wouldn't run so smoothly. Special thanks to Luke Burns who has been volunteering with us as part of his Duke of Edinburgh, and completed his 12th volunteering this week.

See you all next week!


Festive parkrun roundup

Its been another awesome festive season, with lots of parkrunning opportunities. Thank you so much to everyone who has taken part in our Saturdays or our extra festive parkruns this year.

Its been great to see lots of visitors at Camperdown, including people from Milan, Leeds, Cardiff, and Perth. We've also had lots of new parkrunners joining us over the past couple of weeks and 48 first timers today, so we really hope you have enjoyed it and that you'll come back again.

Huge well done to everyone who did the New Year's Day Double today. I was through in Perth, and loved my first experience of double parkrunning. We had a huge turnout at Camperdown today too, and beautiful sunny weather for it.

Thanks to all of our volunteers who helped today, and those who have helped all year. parkrun wouldn't happen without our awesome high viz team, and us Run Directors all love getting to know you better when you help out.

We had a couple of milestone runs today:

Carolann Smith joined the 50 Club
Jim Morton joined the 250 Club
Jan Tavendale ran her 200th Camperdown parkrun
Massive acheivements so well done.

This Saturday is pacer week, and we're still looking for some volunteers, so if you want to get involved, please let us know!

See you all soon!
