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 7,965 registrations this week, 3,141 more than at the same time last week! parkrun registrations are really growing at the moment.

This takes the total number of global parkrun registrations (according to my official source page on the parkrun website) up to 420,498 (up from 412,533). That is a growth in total registrations of 1.9% in a week.

As far as I am aware, there are 3 new parkruns starting this weekend:
Harrow Lodge, Wimpole Estate and Modderfontein

That will take us up to 200 different parkrun events having been run!

Malahide parkrun continues to be top of the charts in the number of new registrations category, this week adding an incredible 247 new registrants so far! What will they do if all the keen new registrants turn up tomorrow morning! That is the most new registrations I remember seeing for a single event in one week. That is now 10 weeks in a row (including before their first event) that Malahide parkrun has added the most new registrations.

An amazing 25 different parkrun events have added 50 or more new registrants this week!
The parkrun events showing (the most) notable growth in registrations this week are:
Event   Total   This week   
Malahide parkrun1969247
Nahoon Point parkrun2032108
Leeds parkrun1137490
New Farm parkrun436190
Glasgow parkrun1255089
South Bank parkrun59089
Cannon Hill parkrun, Birmingham528988
Newy parkrun230088

No great surprises in the "largest parkrun in the world" category this week, where it is still the same top 5:
Event   Total   
Bushy parkrun21295
Glasgow parkrun12550
Leeds parkrun11374
Brighton & Hove parkrun10200
Wimbledon Common parkrun9851
It looks as though Wimbledon Common parkrun is only about 3 weeks away from becoming the 5th parkrun with over 10,000 registered runners.
And at the other end of the spectrum, but just as worthy of a mention we have (with a couple of new entries this week):
Event   Total   
Temple Newsam parkrun7
Walthamstow parkrun13
Upton Court parkrun76
Modderfontein Reserve parkrun80
Carlisle parkrun84
