Remembrance parkrun

On Saturday 10th November Nonsuch parkrun will be marking 100 Years since the signing of the Armistice - the end of the First World War. We invite everyone whether they are running, volunteering or spectating to come along wearing something red. Hopefully we will create a sea of runners wearing red around the course which will not only be very spectacular but also a poignant and fitting tribute from Nonsuch parkrun. Please spread the word. We are appealing to our great cake makers to step forward and create some red cakes to mark the occasion. If you have any other suggestions like making some poppies to put around the course then we would love to hear from you.

Saturday 27th January 2018 – Nonsuch parkrun cancelled

Sat 27th Nonsuch parkrun cancelled.
Due to our course being waterlogged we have regretfully taken the decision to cancel Saturday's parkrun with the safety of our parkrunners being paramount and the long term welfare of our Park being equally as important.
Despite the shots of the rainbow, we hoped the sun and wind might dry the course out enough to ensure the run would go ahead, but with 2500 footsteps on our course (400 runners running 3 laps!) let's give the Park a break.
Hopefully we will be running next Saturday 3rd but do keep an eye out for further information.
Please share this notice as widely as possible.

We need your vote!

We have entered a project in the Aviva Community Fund awards to get the money to launch our junior parkrun and buy a defibrillator.  To get through to the competition final we need to secure as many votes as possible and this is where we need your help please.

Event 142 30 May 2014 – Results

Don't be alarmed when you receive a further email regarding Saturday's event! Our funnel experienced a 'perfect storm'. On reviewing the results, we identified a few anomalies which we've now rectified. Apologies to all and we look forward to another bumper turnout on Saturday.


International/Commonwealth Day – Sat 8th March

As Nonsuch parkruners are such an eclectic mix of nationalities from all over the globe we plan to celebrate Commonwealth Nations Day on Saturday 8th March by inviting everyone to wear something that indicates what country they originate from. This might take the form of a flag, hat, shirt or shorts - your choice. Come down to the parkrun on Saturday 8th and celebrate your county of origin. I know we have a large number of South Africans and East Europeans but from where else do other parkrunners hail from?

This will be an opportunity to enjoy a cake or two after the event so all you budding bakers please get busy and surprise us with an international flavour!

The Gambia Running Kit Appeal

thanks to everyone who brought clean kit and trainers down today - we are open for donations next Saturday so please check cupboards and drawers for any kit that you don't use anymore - it will all be going to a worthy cause.

the back story to our appeal

Last summer, remember those halcyon days, we had a parkrun tourist from the Gambia by the name of Lamin and I'm sure you will remember him striding off at the head of the field. He was in the area training with Sutton & District AC. Over the past few weeks I have been chatting with members of Sutton and it was proposed that we might be able to donate running kit and running shoes to the region in the Gambia where Lamin comes from.
As is happens Middlesex Uni have a link with the Gambia via the Middlesex University Wellbeing Foundation. They will be sending out a group of volunteers to running coaching courses in early March and have offered to take any kit donations with them on the trip.
I know that everyone hoards running kit and running shoes that they never use so now is a chance to pass it onto a well-deserving cause rather than sitting in a drawer or cupboard.
We will be collecting any donations on 1st & 8th March - there will be future collections but initially just these two Saturdays.
Please ensure all the kit is clean and the shoes aren't covered in Nonsuch mud. We can't send any unclean kit. Your washing machine will cope with shoes if you put them into a pillow case or a bit of heavy scrubbing. any other cleaning tips very welcome........
Please mark the sizes on the kit and tie laces together on the shoes. Any messages to the recipients are very welcome.
This will be co-ordinated by Andrea Chapman a regular runner and volunteer at Nonsuch parkrun.
I will post more details over the coming weeks on the whereabouts of your donations- thanks and I know we will rise to the challenge



Nonsuch parkrun cancelled 15th & 22nd February

Nonsuch parkrun cancelled for Saturday 15th & Saturday 22nd February.

We have taken the difficult decision to cancel the next two Saturdays with the aim to restart Nonsuch parkrun on Saturday 1st March. Unfortunately the forecast for the next 10 days is for no let up in the rain that will be falling over the south of England so we have decided to cancel for the safety of parkrunners and for the welfare of our Park. We hope that this early warning will allow you to plan your next parkrun venue and we would love to hear where you have been on your travels.
As one of our cancellation stewards said last week the Park doesn't seem the same without us at 0900 on a Saturday.
We are very hopeful that normal service will be resumed in March and will keep you all updated.
Nonsuch parkrun will come back all the stronger with parkrunners having been around different parkruns and realising there is no place like home.
Please spread the word and spare a thought that we are missing our parkrun but there are 000s of people who have lost a lot more than a parkrun.
