parkrun registration stats this week

There is still a little time for new registrations this week, but at the time of writing and compared to the figures in my post this time last week....

Totalling up new registrations across parkrun globally, shows that parkrun has attracted a further 2508 registrations this week.

This takes the total number of global parkrun registrations (according to my official source page on the parkrun website) up to 398,499 (up from 395,991). That is a growth of 0.6% on last week.

It would therefore appear that parkrun should break-through the 400,000 registrations mark sometime in the next few days. If it hasn't already that is, as the stats are sometimes a bit behind real registrations, or so I believe.

No new parkruns starting this week, but next weekend sees the addition of Darlington South Park parkrun and Congleton parkrun to the parkrun family.

Four runs in and Malahide parkrun continues to be top of the charts in the number of new registrations category, this week adding yet another 99 new registrants so far. That is now five weeks (including before their first event) in a row that Malahide parkrun has added the most new registrations. Amazing growth at Malahide parkrun.

parkrun events showing notable growth in registrations this week are:
Event   Total   This week   
Malahide parkrun127699
Newy parkrun188548
St Peters parkrun212538
Nahoon Point parkrun162537

No great surprises in the "largest parkrun in the world" category this week, where it is still:
Event   Total   
Bushy parkrun20952
Glasgow parkrun12313
Leeds parkrun11143
Brighton & Hove parkrun9979

Brighton and Hove parkrun there closing in on 10,000 registrants! Next week probably, for an early Christmas present.

And at the other end of the spectrum, but just as worthy of a mention we have (including a new entry):
Event   Total   
Darlington South Park parkrun4
Upton Court parkrun36
Congleton parkrun41


  1. I'm totally up for Darlington South - combining it with visit to my Dad (Scunthorpe, where rumour has it there will be a parkrun... one day?). Who's with me?

    1. Committed to the cause as usual Norm!

      Keep on moving up that inaugural run list.


We would love to hear from you and welcome all comments.
