Mount Edgcumbe parkrun is cancelled on 2021-05-22 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

A Celebration of Female Participation #IWDparkrun

International Women's Day - Saturday 7th March, 2020

- A Celebration of Female Participation -Screenshot 2020-02-19 at 19.30.49

Our research shows us 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 would love for you to join in the celebration by encouraging any female friends or family members, particularly those who may not have found parkrun yet, to join us for a 5km walk, jog or run together at Mount Edgcumbe. Of course, men are still welcome at this event!

Will you be there? Let us know via our Facebook or Twitter feeds and start spreading the word. Check out the map of #IWD events taking place, as well as read more here

See you on the 7th!



Dear parkrunners,

Regretably, our weekly event scheduled for the 15th February has been cancelled due to forecast strong winds and heavy rain. Mount Edgcumbe will be closed to the public and we are therefore unable to run our event safely.

Thank you to those who put themselves forward to volunteer. We'll see you all next week for some spring sunshine!

The Core Team.


Looking back at our inaugural event, on our 4th anniversary.

Haven't we aged Didn't we look so young and free!

We thought we would grab the opportunity on our 4th anniversary to pick out some faces from that January day 4 years ago. Enjoy!

Mount Edgcumbe parkrun
Event number 200
25th January 2020 - 4th anniversary

Mount Edgcumbe parkrun started on 30th January 2016. Since then 2,937 participants have completed 10,057 parkruns covering a total distance of 50,285 km, including 1,541 new Personal Bests. A total of 314 individuals have volunteered 2,686 times.

*UPDATE: This means ROSS HARVIE completed our 10,000th pakrun over the Mount Edgcumbe trails!


Through four years of navigating craft fayres, high winds, New Year extras and weddings, the powers aligned to see our 200th run land on our 4th anniversary. And what an excellent morning it was too - you came, you sang and you walked, jogged and ran. Visitors from Taunton, Portsmouth and Alresford; Croydon, Clapham and Crewe, made up 24 first timers who joined us. Regular RD from Devonport junior parkrun, Luke Cameron, popped over to dedicate his 25th volunteering event to the first-timers briefing and Jonah Struthers chalked off 10 for his coveted junior white shirt.

Cake was shared thanks to the stellar baking efforts of Cass Bisco, Noah and Sarah Struthers - Noah's DofE portfolio passing another test - and Jon bought flowers to brighten the overcast morning. Of course, the smiles and fruity outfits of the 70+ others did the rest.
