Parking at Queen’s parkrun

We have a problem and need your help.

Between our parkrun and the increasing number of activities on the site, car parking at the Playing Fields has become completely congested on Sat mornings. Increasing numbers of parkrun volunteers are having to deal with the the flow of pedestrians and traffic onto and through the site rather than marshaling the run.

Therefore we want to trial a new initiative.
ALL parkrunners will now park in the Dub Lane car park leaving the main car park free for other users. As parkrunners arrive we will have marshals in place to direct them to the lower car park. This will require the assistance of some early marshals who could then run and get a volunteer credit.

There are other options. Park (legally and safely) off site in the area. parkrun also encourages participants to walk, jog, cycle, car-share or use public transport when attending any event to reduce the impact on both the environment and other park users.

Please help us get this under control so we can all get back to what we love- to run!
