Christmas 2017

Good news! Highbury Fields parkrun will be hosting extra events again on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, both at 9am. New Year's Day is the only day of the year where participants are allowed to 'do the double' and get credits for two separate parkruns. As in previous years, our friends down at Southwark parkrun (a short hop down the overground line) will be hosting their New Year event at 10:30 and there'll be lots of us doing both.

Please email us if you'd like to volunteer on either day!


Christmas and New Years Days

As in previous years we are putting on extra parkruns on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. These are in addition to the Saturday parkruns on 23rd and 30th December. All these parkruns start at 9AM as usual.


Christmas and New Year parkruns

Good news we are planning on putting on parkruns on both Christmas Day and New Years Day again this wintere. These are in addition to the regular Saturday runs (Dec 27th and Jan 3rd). Some come out with your new runner gear and build up an appetite for Christmas dinner and for a recovery run after New Years Eve.


Event Number 108 30th November 2013

Saturday was the 18th time 100 or more runners finished our parkrun.  Congratulations to all 103 of you. Particular congratulations go to Frances O'Shea (JW14) and Ian Hall (VM60-64) on earning their parkrun t-shirts for completing 10 and 50 runs respectively.   We welcomed 22 new comers to Highbury Fields and 22 also set PB's.

At the sharp end of the run, there was plenty of competition from the first 6 men with Martin Rutter pulling away on the last 2 laps to finish first in 17:49 followed by Daniel Mutlow (17:55) and Alan Silvestor (17:57).  Visitors were the theme this week with Rutter visiting from Bramhall parkrun, Silvestor from Brighton, Jorge Arrebola-Rodriguez from Cambridge in 4th and Ryohei Ueta from Wormwood Scrubs in 5th.

Caroline Kelly maintained her impressive start to the 2014 points table with her 2nd win and a 2nd place in the 3 runs this year.  Kelly came home in 20:36 ahead of Gina Heiss (20:48) and Bryony Willett (22:31) from Hilly Fields.

The best age-related performance of the day came from Francesco Masia (VM40-44) with graded 72.89% for the time 19:00 (10th overall).  A special shout-out to Jessica Vinluan who ran just a couple of hours after getting a red-eye flight from the USA. Whereas Jonathan Litchfield only managed to assist with barcode scanning.  Flo Hanson with Gilda were also barcode scanning, whilst Joanne Hislop handed out the finishing tokens and Jonathan Patel had his finger on the stopwatch. Many thanks to our volunteers.

Christmas and New Year
As it's now December, we can talk about Christmas (and New Year).  As with last year, Highbury Fields will be operating additional parkruns on both Christmas Day and New Year's Day at our usual start times of 9:00AM. There is nothing you need to do differently for these runs, just turn up as normal.  For those of you travelling during this period checkout this page to see if you are close to parkrun that is also putting on additional runs (start times may vary from the normal 9AM)
