parkrun registrations this week...8th March 2013

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 5,651 registrations in a week, 474 more than last week.

This takes the total number of global parkrun registrations (according to my official source page on the parkrun website) up to 460,705 (up from 455,054). That is a growth in total registrations of over 1.2% in a week.

As far as I am aware, there are 5 new parkruns starting this weekend:
Parramatta parkrun in Australia
Brandon Country parkrun, Newent parkrun and Hackworth parkrun in the UK
Marlay parkrun in Ireland

For the third week running Marlay parkrun is at the top of the charts with the most new registrations this week.

8 different parkrun events have added 50 or more new registrants this week and they are:
Event   Total   This week   
Marlay parkrun709239
Malahide parkrun3336118
Parramatta parkrun12268
Newy parkrun296862
Delamere parkrun23857
South Bank parkrun124557
Edinburgh parkrun907455
Heaton parkrun789950

No great surprises in the "largest parkrun in the world" (by total registrations) category this week, where it is still the same top 5:
Event   Total   
Bushy parkrun21734
Glasgow parkrun12964
Leeds parkrun11767
Brighton & Hove parkrun10542
Wimbledon Common parkrun10161

And at the other end of the spectrum (with the lowest number of registered parkrunrunners), but just as worthy of a mention (as these are new or future parkrun events) we have:
Event   Total   
Cross Flatts parkrun7
Maidstone parkrun9
Mulbarton parkrun15
Riverway parkrun21
Hackworth parkrun28

Three new future parkrun events appear in this list for the first time: Maidstone, Mulbarton and Riverway parkruns. Woodlands parkrun is also now listed but with no registrants so far.
