WTF Parkrun Cup

Updated: Dec 23, 2021

In 2022 we are launching our fabulous new inaugural WTF Parkrun cup. This will be:

  • A knockout tournament handicapped to your post Covid PB

  • A launch night in January with a live draw

  • A Fartlek Family meet up for the final and a trophy up for grabs

We understand Parkrun isn't for everyone, so there is no pressure to take part, however we'd love everyone to get involved for a bit of fun, motivation and to bring people together. This could be a great way to kickstart the new year running motivation.

Full details of the cup and how to get involved are detailed below.

Cup details:

Our games master Ben is a huge fan of Parkrun and will be co-ordinating all the entries and proceedings.


At each round we will give a range of dates to complete the race, meaning you have potentially 4 go's at it! (you don't have to submit your first attempt unless you only get chance to do it once in the month!). The Parkrun venue is entirely your choice.


Each round will see the remaining entrants drawn to race against another entrant. We then take your respective times to have a handicap race-off! Let’s say Rob has a 25.30 pb and Matt has 26.00 pb. At the race if Rob runs it in 25.45 (15 seconds slower than his pb) and Matt runs it in 26.10 (10 seconds slower than his pb) then Matt wins!


To enter all we need is your name and your official 5k/parkrun PB since July 2021.


How to enter:

To enter just drop @sheffield_strider a message on Instagram by 12pm New Years Day 2022, together with your official 5k/Parkrun PB since July 2021 and Ben will do the rest.


Lets have some fun in the new year and create some Parkrun excitement!!!
