Totalling up new registrations across parkrun globally, shows that parkrun has attracted a further 4,424 registrations this week, 675 more 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 434,237 (up from 429,813). That is a growth in total registrations of over 1% in a week.
As far as I am aware, there are 3 new parkruns starting this weekend:
Wolverhampton and Hillsborough parkruns. Plus Temple Newsam parkrun, original intended to start last week, but postponed due to adverse weather conditions.
Malahide parkrun returns to the top of the charts in the number of new registrations category this week after a one week dip to second place, with 152 new registrations in the week.
6 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:
|Nahoon Point parkrun||2313||68|
|South Bank parkrun||821||56|
|Modderfontein Reserve parkrun||217||54|
No great surprises in the "largest parkrun in the world" category this week, where it is still the same top 5:
|Brighton & Hove parkrun||10322|
|Wimbledon Common parkrun||9970|
It looks as though Wimbledon Common parkrun is one or possibly two 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:
|Lake Mac parkrun||26|
The top three of these appear to be new parkrun events showing up in the new registrations page for the first time.
