Gunpowder parkrun

What is Gunpowder parkrun?

A free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event. Walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate – it's up to you!

When is it?

Every Saturday at 9:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place at Gunpowder Park, Waltham Abbey, Essex. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time

How fast do I have to be?

We all take part for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Gunpowder parkrun needs you!

It is entirely organised by volunteers - email to help.

We're friendly!

Every week we'll be grabbing a post parkrun coffee, but we've not decided on the permanent location yet - in any case, please join us after the event.
