220 parkrun events run - up 24 on last week and a new record number of events on a single parkrunday!
29,567 runners, up a whopping 13,473 on last week! Another new global record attendance and so close to breaking the 30,000 mark for the first time - maybe next weekend!

The longest standing parkrun attendance record is:
Amager Faelled 146 28/08/2010
And in the UK it's shared by:
The highest attendance this week was 860 at Bushy Park.
The lowest attendance this week was just 11 at Nibe.
We now have 20 parkrun events with a record attendance of over 400. Amazingly 19 of those still haven't yet reached an attendance of 500 or over, with Bushy park Parkrun still the only such parkrun event, with their current record attendance standing at 1051 (5th Jan 2013).
So firstly, which will be the next parkrun event to reach the mark of 400 parkrunners for the first time and which event will be the second to break the fantastic 500 mark?
I'm going to split the time and age-grade performances summary into another blog post this week to stop this one from becoming too long.
