Needs a couple of X parkruns setup in somewhere remote in the US or NZ first, or possibly Ukraine when their 5km series restarts and inevitably gets merged with parkrun and replaces the Russian events.

Then at some point the might allow an X in the UK or Australia, or an event starting in Xylo Park gets renamed after its already been running for a year with another name beginning with an A.

They kind of need to create some X events sooner as it otherwise becomes a bigger problem the longer they leave it. Whilst there isn't many places called X around the world, it could be a problem for naming somewhere yet.

Got something to say?

There may be an inaugural parkrun happening near you. Best to check with the local parkrun volunteers to see if they want you to know about it or not.

Otherwise there are plenty of already established parkruns to go to in the UK and abroad, see:
