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 3,749 registrations this week, 1,817 less than at the same time last week.

This takes the total number of global parkrun registrations (according to my official source page on the parkrun website) up to 429,813 (up from 426,064). That is a growth in total registrations of nearly 0.9% in a week.

As far as I am aware, there are 2 new parkruns starting this weekend:
Walthamstow parkrun and Temple Newsam parkrun

Malahide parkrun is no longer top of the charts in the number of new registrations category this week, dropping to second place. Newy parkrun in Australia is the fastest growing parkrun event by registration this week. Newy parkrun has added another 125 new registrants so far!

7 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   
Newy parkrun2522125
Malahide parkrun2325119
Nahoon Point parkrun221293
South Bank parkrun75277
Carlisle parkrun28964
New Farm parkrun448659
Glasgow parkrun1269753

No great surprises in the "largest parkrun in the world" category this week, where it is still the same top 5:
Event   Total   This week   
Bushy parkrun2138225
Glasgow parkrun1269753
Leeds parkrun1147029
Brighton & Hove parkrun1027924
Wimbledon Common parkrun993733

It looks as though Wimbledon Common parkrun is only about 2 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:
Event   Total   
Hillsborough parkrun19
Walthamstow parkrun27
Telford parkrun30
Wolverhampton parkrun46
Temple Newsam parkrun72

Another new parkrun event in the pipeline there with Hillsborough parkrun showing up in the new registrations page for the first time.
