20th July 2019 – Event Cancelled

I'm sorry to have to announce that Wanstead Flats parkrun will be cancelled on the 20th of July; this is due to another event in the park.

However, don't let this stop you getting your parkrun fix! There are plenty of alternatives. Here are just 4 of the around 60 in London you could choose:

Hackney Marshes - our nearest neighbour. A flat, fast, tarmac course; you can either walk/run/bike there - it's around 2 miles away - or get the W15 from Leytonstone Station.

Victoria Dock - another flat, fast course - but this time with cobbles and cable-cars. Take the jubilee line to Greenwich and then fly over the Thames for gorgeous views of the course, or just get off at Canning town and walk.

Finsbury Park - more tarmac, but not exactly flat. Has a teeny-tiny hill. Take the overground from Leytonstone High Road to Crouch Hill - it'll be around a 15 minute walk from the station.

Bushy Park. Do I need to explain why you might want to visit the birth place of parkrun? It's a unique experience, and well worth the visit. The nearest stations are Hampton Court and Hampton Wick, both around 2km from the start. Avoid driving; the car parks fill up by 8:30 or so.

Happy parkrunning wherever you end up!


Happy 100th


Well done Camila.
