About Us

Guildford parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in It's run in Stoke Park, Guildford just opposite the Spectrum. Please park in the Park & Ride car park at the Guildford Spectrum Leisure Centre, use postcode GU1 1UP. See Course page for more details.. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee at the Wey Valley Bowls Club, The Lido Road, Stoke Rd, Guildford GU1 1HB. Please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.
