CASTLEPARK parkrun Event #100

Castle Park parkrun
Event number 100
24th August 2019

So, Castle Park parkrun achieved yet another milestone by hosting its 100th event in glorious sunshine and temperatures soaring into the low to mid twenties at nine in the morning. The heat and long weekend (of course) did not put the runners off and 372 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and even in this heat, 33 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 27 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 28 volunteers who really deserve a big thank you for giving up your time to make it possible for everybody else to enjoy the event. THANK YOU!:

Christmas and New Year

Castle Park parkrun will be held on Christmas day at 9am, and also on New Year's day at 9.00am (this will enable you to jump to one of the other local events to do a double, if you want an active way to celebrate the start of the New Year!)

Also, if you can support either event by volunteering then please email

Event #55 – 6th September 2018

This Saturday, there was a chill in the air and some sporadic drizzle - Autumn is definitely here. Fortunately we got the event done and dusted before the heavier showers turned up later in the morning. The ground is still pretty firm underfoot, although getting slippier. We might need to start thinking about footwear choices pretty soon...

This week 322 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 30 were first timers and 52 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.

Event #55 was made possible by 23 amazing volunteers:

Oliver LAST • John ETHERDEN • Chris CHEW • Matthieu MILITON • Ben PICKFORD • Christopher CONNELL • Graham MULLY • Brian FINNIGAN • Kobus SMITH • Patricia POOLE • Elanor CADZOW • Dana SMITH • Louise GARDNER • Annabel KANE • John EMMETT • J OLEARY • Scott NUGENT • Simon DEWHURST • Paula WALKER • Charlie CARRICK • Simon GARDNER • Seamus POWER • Velichko KOLEV

Next week we have a pacer event, and are still looking for our last few pace-setters as well as the usual volunteer roles. Please get in touch if you can help with any of these.

Francesca is your run director for next week.
