Incident: 16th November 2019

Many of you will have witnessed that there was a serious incident at Gunnersbury parkrun this weekend. Mark was taken to hospital and is likely to stay for a number of days. Together with Mark, we would like to thank all those who helped; the response from runners, volunteers and the ambulance service was excellent. Considering everything, Mark is in good spirits and we hope to see him back at Gunnersbury sometime soon.


Car parking charges are coming

Car parking charges are coming next year. Here is a link to the consultation survey where you can share your views:


CHANGE OF ROUTE (again!): 31st August & 7th September

Due to the upcoming Gunnersville festival, we will use the out and back course on Saturdays 31st August & 7th September. The meeting point is at the top of the park, near the car park.



Temporary course on 6th and 13th July 2019

Lovebox and Citadel festivals are coming to Gunnersbury park and therefore the parkrun will be using a different route on 6th and 13th July.
The start and finish will be on the grass near to the main entrance leading to the car park.
If you are joining us on those dates, please allow yourselves enough time to find us. Please note the pedestrian entrance off of Popes Lane opposite Elderberry Road is still closed.

The alternative route will be similar to the 'winter route' previously used for many years however, there will be an out-and-back section where you may meet others coming in the opposite direction. Please take care.


You may also want to consider a bit of parkrun tourism such as:
On the 6th July our neighbours Osterley parkrun are celebrating their 300th event using a special one lap route, taking in the gardens of the National Trust. There will be cake...



Gunnersbury in July

After two weeks of cancellations, we are going ahead tomorrow! (21st July). 

There will be some fences remaining in the park. Runners, walkers and volunteers will need to be extra careful but the pathways should be clear.


Cancellation in July

Gunnersbury parkrun will be cancelled for at least the first two weeks, potentially the whole month, of July due to other events in the park. 


There will be no event on 7th or 14th July.

We will provide further updates as time passes on whether we can go ahead on 21st July onward.

"We really enjoyed our parkrun with you last week. Thank you for mentioning us in your newsletter. It sounds like a cliche but everyone we met was very welcoming and helpful. We loved the park and course despite the high temperatures."
