About this parkrun

Ran Bushy on Christmas Day, some great outfits in a four figure strong crowd!
PWA 3rd Jan 2019

Nice, flat and only one lap. Parking can be a nuisance and getting away from the parking can be very busy.
Garfield 3rd Jan 2019

The original! Flat, mostly gravel path. Very wide start accommodates the 1000+ runners nicely. Ge tther at 8:30 or before to get parking - if you're reasonably quick then getting away again isn't too much of a problem. There are loos but also queues!
iRicey 7th Jan 2019

Mostly gravel, flat, fast, 1 lap. Usually gets well over 1000 runners, so can be busy, but also means you're rarely running alone. Don't drive - get the train. Ideally have a bit of time to wander around after. The OG - you NEED to to this.

Flat 1 lap course on grass and trail. arrive early (8:15?) and park nearby the start or the cafe which is 5 mins walk away. Always busy - have your barcode to hand and do as you are told in the finish funnel.

the original is now a massive event, feels very different to other parkruns as a result. The start line is a serious experience. Wide, flat, single lap course mainly on hard trail. Perhaps park outside the park and jog in. Do it!
Windsor Wool 19th Jan 2019

The home of parkrun, its a must do, at least to get your pilgrim badge. As you'd expect extremely busy, but well organised, and continues to show that parkrun ethos of community. 1 lap, figure of eight, grass and gravel paths.

One lap on trails, entirely flat, scenic. The biggest UK parkrun and can take a while to get through the finish funnel - it is excellently handled though. Bus 111 or 216 to Hampton Court are nearest, also train to Hampton Wick or Hampton Court.
Chramies 27th Apr 2019

Park further out and jog in to avoid the queues. Lovely wide start and very quick especially due to the number of numbers who you can use for pacing against. Experience the double funnel and hand out, palm up to get your position token

The original parkrun although different course from original. Very busy one lapper around a beautiful park on grass, tarmac and a hard noggin path. Fun double funnel at end and rumour has it a lovely and handsome Event Director...
Yazoo 28th May 2019

Fantastic to run where it all began. Great single lap run. Volunteers marvellous.
Bobbyboy 28th May 2019

Flat, one lap. Wide grass start then gravel and tarmac paths. A mile from Teddington train station. Much faster than I was expecting to get through the finish funnel.
Bramble 1st Jun 2019

The Mecca of parkrun. A must do for any true parkrun fan of within easy distance. Something very special about coming here.

Aimed to break Sub:25 today, went off with Sub:24 Pacer. Straight was ok, hard steady pace but well in control this remained the case until 2km. Then pacer slowly built a 20-30m gap. Managed to get back on his shoulder at 3km. At 3.5km Breathing hard, legs with lactic decided I needed to stop and walk recover for 30 Sec's and couldn't quite get back to pace there after. Really annoyed with myself after for stopping and the fact that I still need more speed endurance. Finished dissapointed although my second best time.
First run in VFFs running with Jaruska
