If you are coming from M5 jun 6 follow signs to Droitwich until you get to the lights where you need to turn left towards Worcester then 1st right passed the aquatic centre, onto Church Lane. WR3 8TQ

If you are coming from Droitwich you need to come up to New Chawson Lane post code WR9 0AQ and follow the signs left at the bottom of the Lane.

This will be until autumn unfortunately.


A very windy #18th run!

We got out of the car at Parkrun to a surprisingly blustery and cold morning. Yet despite the weather, 66 people had turned up for the run (including 14 first timers) and we were greeted by an upbeat and welcoming briefing. We clapped someone’s 50th - Parkrun, not birthday, the run director clarified. Not the ideal weather for a milestone ice cream!

There were plenty of cow pats in the first field, creating an added incentive to concentrate on exactly where our feet were going.  Then out of the field and down a steep hill, which we were obviously going to have to run up at the end.

We enjoyed the twists and turns of a proper cross-country course, though perhaps the hills were more character building than enjoyable. There were lots of friendly marshals, which was a good thing too as we’d have got lost otherwise!  They were also impressively noisy with cowbells and other musical accompaniments.

Sure enough, after the final turn we were faced with the final hill up to the finish line.  Steep uphill finishes seem to be becoming a bit of a thing for us, with Wyre Forest not far away and our experience last week at Tamar Trails in Devon. In comparison, this one is mercifully short! We witnessed some pretty impressive springs up the final hill and ten people gained a PB today.

Thanks again for packing an interesting Parkrun and for sharing it with us. We were sorry not to be able to stop for breakfast, which sounded as substantial as the Parkrun.

Blowing a Gale #7

Despite hurricane-force winds today, with the course threatening to tear itself out of the ground, the intrepid runners tried their hardest to keep moving forwards around the course. With impressive times considering the conditions! A special thanks goes out to those who have travelled from far and wide to run with us this morning.


 With 48 First Time runners and 109 runners in total, 9 of them, undeterred by the weather, got themselves a PB. Andrew Trigg completed his 300th Parkrun at Churchfields today, thank you for picking us for such a big milestone!

Thank you to all the volunteers, those who froze this morning so we could run the Parkrun: Paula Brass, James Brass, Stuart Brooks, Abbie Chambers, Ellie Clark, Sadie Clark, Amanda Cooper, Richard Cundy, Emily Elsdon, Karen Hinks, Bethan Hobbs, Liz Jenkins, Jennifer Kerton, Will Kerton Gillian Kerton, Louisa Kerton, Kevin Lambe, Kevin Parsons, Stephen Sherry, Hayley Sherry, Rebecca Terry, Owen Thompson, Lisa Walton, Guy Walton, Phillip Whelan, Alex Winwood, Ben Wood, Michael Woodall and David Wright. We couldn't have done it without you all.

After the run a lot of us thawed ourselves off inside the cafe with a warm drink and breakfast, marking the end to another successful, but windy, week of Churchfields Parkrun.
I hope to see you all again next week, hopefully in warmer weather.

#6 Cold and bright morning for it.

Today was certainly a fresh one, the ground was frozen and the sky was blue. A perfect morning for a run, plenty of folks made the journey from far and wide to run this morning and braved the cold. I think the furthest was from Brighton, which is a fair old trek, .so thank you for coming to our Parkrun.

fresh start

There were 116 runners, 60 first timers from 23 different clubs and 43 PB's, well done to those who got PB's. Also a shout out to Shelia LAMMAS who has set a new ladies record of 23.20. and next week will be her 100th Park run, so Shelia if you are with us again let us know. Other miles stones this week are Jamie SMITH on his 50th and Jackson CUNDY (junior) on his 10th, a t shirt will be on it way to you soon.

Special mention to Ian and Emma Shepard who have travelled from their home run of Thornbury. Ian completed his 50 Cowell run and Emma completed her Pirate challenge with Churchfields being her last 'C'. Pictured below with ED Will Kerton and RD Gillian Kerton, with their free ice cream, Don't forget if you have a milestone to let us know as you get a free ice cream of your choice.
