A 5km run - it's you against the clock.

Parkrun is a volunteer led,  free, weekly, 5km timed run that is held around the world. The run is open to everyone, free, and is safe and easy to take part in.

Every Saturday, 9am start, meeting at The Pavilion by the Boating Lake.


Parking for parkrun is at the Lake Car park. Sat nav postcode M25 0DL.

Pay and Display is in operation from 10am, but you can pay for your parking from 8am.

The easiest way to pay for your parking is by mobile phone using the "PaybyPhone" app. Our parking pages give you more information on how to register before you arrive. It avoids the queues at the machines, no cash is required and you will receive handy top-ups and reminders in case you want to extend your stay.

As with other available methods, payments can be made from 8am on the day of the event and will take effect from the start of the charging period at 10am (so a two hour ticket bought at 8am will cover parking charges from 10am-12noon).

You need a location/car park ID to use the app and for this event, please use the Lake car parks which have the location ID 800894.
