Our partners are an extremely important part of the parkrun family, which is why we select them so carefully.

Each of our partners has a deep understanding of the culture and ethos of parkrun and the values that are close to our heart. That’s why we are proud to support them in return.

What Next?
create a parkrun

parkrun aims to have an event in every community that wants one. Want your own parkrun event in your backyard? Read on.

We'd be delighted to work with you to set up and manage a parkrun event in your own backyard. All that you need to start this wonderful journey is some determination and drive. We will help you with the rest of the process offering a step by step guide, assistance and support.

Don't believe us? Why not ask any of the existing events for a reference? Each event is independently managed and controlled by the event director and so their reference is very important. If you wish to talk to them directly, go to the event website, find the event directors email address and write to them directly.

However, if you would like to hear from us then send us an enquiry and we'll get back to you very quickly.
