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 4,824 registrations this week, this is nearly double the rate of recent weeks. The New Year's Resolution effect!

This takes the total number of global parkrun registrations (according to my official source page on the parkrun website) up to 412,533.

I believe that there are two new parkruns starting this week at Barnstaple (UK) and Sunrise-on-Sea (South Africa).

Malahide parkrun continues to be top of the charts in the number of new registrations category, this week adding yet another 139 new registrants so far. That is now nine weeks (including before their first event) in a row that Malahide parkrun has added the most new registrations.

parkrun events showing notable growth in registrations this week are:
Event   Total   This week   
Malahide parkrun1639139
Newy parkrun219096
Bushy parkrun2120189
Wimbledon Common parkrun976775

South Bank parkrun48856
Sheffield Hallam parkrun599055
Poole parkrun387953
Southampton parkrun155253
Tilgate parkrun151751

No great surprises in the "largest parkrun in the world" category this week, where it is still the same top 5:
Event   Total   
Bushy parkrun21201
Glasgow parkrun12445
Leeds parkrun11253
Brighton & Hove parkrun10142
Wimbledon Common parkrun9767

Wimbledon Common parkrun will become the 5th parkrun to reach 10,000 registrants within the next few weeks.

And at the other end of the spectrum, but just as worthy of a mention we have (Walthamstow parkrun a new entry this week!):

Modderfontein Reserve parkrun11
Wimpole Estate parkrun41
