Also a special mention to Vinnie Darch (in the selfie frame) She has volunteered 50 times at peckham rye parkrun!

We welcomed Cass Casleton from the parkrun world tourists who after running at peckham rye travelled to parkrun Gdynia in Poland and ran another parkrun on boxing day!



Event #299 28th December 2019 

The final run of the Decade! For this i decided to treat you all to the slightly faster alternative route. Still Three laps but in a Clockwise direction with an extended run around the lake. Its nice to change things occasionally and the last run of 2019 seemed the perfect time to do it

Nicole King completed her 50th parkrun and Peter Rogers ran his 100th


Lizzie and Luke Peach also joined the 100 club

Huge well done to you all


James Taylor (PB) finished 1st in 17:35 followed by Aidan Mercer 18:00 and Ron Taylor 18:25

Naomi Aylwin (PB) 20:07 lead home the ladies from Alexandra Mcclelland (first visit) 20:57 was 2nd with Chantal Vermeer (PB) 21:10 finishing 3rd

Our next event will be Wednesday 1st January starting at 09:00am, New Years Day is the only time of the year you can run Two parkruns in the same day. You could go to Dulwich or Hilly Fields for 10:00am and get a Second parkrun fix


These events are all possible to our fantastic volunteers, If you have not volunteered before then please consider giving it ago. If all regular runners give just THREE Saturdays back per year then we will have enough

Thank You for supporting our event and i wish you all a Happy 2020
