Event Details

parkrun is a weekly timed 5K run that is put on free of charge by volunteers. The Elgin one is part of a wordwide network of parkruns and you can find out more here on the Elgin parkrun website

We have 58 Moravian-registered parkrunners who take part in the Elgin run, plus several more who are registered as a running-club or unattached parkrunner.

This week's event is being put on entirely by Moravian members, under the leadership of Phill Thompson, an experienced run director.  We've done this once before earlier this year, and as well as being a fun morning with friends it helps make the local running community more aware of our club and our sport.

Phill has collated the helpers roster which is now complete. For those involved, the jobs are all very simple and a full explanation will be given on the day. So just come and run.  Do make sure you wear your club top!

If you're not already a registered parkrunner you'll need to obtain your personal bar code on the parkrun web site (see above) and bring it with you on the day.

Please aim to arrive at 9am for a briefing in Cooper Park if you're helping. If you're running, you can turn up at 9.29 as there's no registration process to go through. But a minute later and you'll be playing catch up.

The run starts at 9.30am prompt, and it will be all over by 10.30am


Courses available: 

Flat 2-lap course around the park and along the flood embankment, 5 Km in total.


Children aged 4 and over are welcome to take part but young children aged 10 or under must run with an adult within arms length.
