This week we welcome Victoria parkrun in Glasgow, Pontypridd parkrun in Wales and Armagh parkrun in Northern Ireland and Kalgoorlie-Boulder parkrun in Western Australia and Berwick Springs parkrun in Victoria, Australia.

Five new events this week bringing the total number of live events to 320 world-wide.
There are now 44 parkrun events in Australia, seven in Denmark, six in Ireland, four in New Zealand, 10 in Poland, 19 in South Africa, 229 in the UK and three in the USA.

Last week we recorded a record number of runners - 48,253. Thanks for your involvement and for your support of international parkrun day.

We wish the new teams the very best of luck and welcome all new parkruns and parkrunners to the family.

Please remember that you can help secure the future of your parkrun event by offering to volunteer. Its simple, edit your profile and indicate which events you want to hear from. You won't automatically be volunteered - we will write to you offering you the chance to volunteer. You are always in control.
