The results today were slow due to a system fault, but everyone
today was amazing! We are very grateful to the volunteers who
made this event happen: Joseph BRANNAGAN, Andrew BRISCOE, Jo
MANN, Freddie MINTON, Heidi READMAN, Colin REID, Violet REID,

Lawrie Cummings broke a Hartlepool Parkrun record for becoming
the fastest Veteran 80 runner at our course!

It was a lovely morning at Seaton Carew to as 165 runners
descended on the promenade. If you can volunteer over the next few weeks, do so! Its great fun!

Our leader today was Keith Hutchinson who finished with a time of 17:50. The weather was hot today but that didn’t stop any of you. There were lots of First Timers too. You all ran like the wind and even on the tiny hill (upward flat section) and right round the turn point. We had no funnel duckers today so well done for that! See you next time


International Women’s Day (7th Mar 2020) #IWD, #TGC



Hi everyone

Hartlepool parkrun will you be staging a special event for International Women's Day on Saturday 7th March 2020.  This event will be supported by the This Girl Can campaign, and parkrun UK partners Sport England. Research shows  that, across the world, women are less likely than men to take part in parkrun. Despite the fact that females make 54% of registrations, they are less likely than men to take part in parkrun and to continue participating. IWD parkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate in parkrun events all over the world. 

We are asking everyone to bring another female along to parkrun with them be it your best mate, a work colleage or a family member. Make sure they are registered and have printed off their barcodes and bring their barcodes with them. You are also welcome to wear purple, which is the colour parkrun UK have selected for this event or a combination or purple, green and white (colours of the suffragettes).  Also, as it is the first Saturday of the month we will still be holding our parkrun pacers day.

Please join us for this event.

New Year’s Day parkrun at Hartlepool

New years day


New Years Day is the only time you can record two parkruns in one day therefore here at Hartlepool parkrun we are teaming up with our good friends at Cotsford Field's parkrun to create a parkrun double delight!!  This was such a huge sucess last year.  Start off at Cotsford Fields parkrun in Horden at 9am, then make your way over to Hartlepool parkrun for a 10.30am start. 

Both parkruns rely on volunteersd to make this event happen, therefore if you would like to volunteer please get in touch.
