From one parkrun to the many

The best things in life are free. Especially a Saturday or Sunday morning parkrun. And that’s not just us saying it, 4 million of you across the world agree too. It’s staggering to think how much parkrun has grown from that small get-together in Bushy Park all those years ago. There are now more parkrunners than people in Wales!

Our challenge and your support

Someone new joins parkrun every 17 seconds. Yes parkrun is free to participate in, and delivered locally by volunteers, but as we continue to expand at an unprecedented rate, so too do the costs involved. We know that many parkrunners want a way of contributing to our future sustainability. parkrun Forever allows our community to make small, regular donations (and claim Gift Aid) that will help safeguard parkrun for future generations. Looking to support your local event? You can make a donation to a parkrun event of your choice by going to the 'About Us' page on the event's website. 

Introducing parkrun Forever

parkrun Forever is a new, voluntary way for the parkrun community to keep parkrun free, for everyone, forever. By contributing a little every month you will make a big difference in securing our future. As a thank you, you will be entered into the Thank You Draw each month.
