Christmas & New Year parkrun

Yes, we will be celebrating with extra spirit and holding Chrismas and New Year parkruns. These will be held at our usual time of 8am on the 25th Dec and the 1st of Jan. We will still have our usual Saturday parkrun continue throughout the holidays, so come and join us.


We hope to see you there to celebrate the silly season and to start the new year off the best way we know-how.




Christmas + New Years Day parkruns

We will be holding a Christmas day parkrun at 8 am, so bring your friends family and your best Chrismas outfit along and share a special morning at parkrun.


Let's start 2020 the only way we know-how, with a lovely walk, jog, run or volunteer in our beautiful Cornwall Park. We will start parkrun on New Years Day at 9 am, so we can all have a little sleep in.

Come and join us for a fresh new year!



Cornwall Park parkrun, Auckland Event #355 – 4 May 2019


A brilliant way to round off my Trans-Tasman trip with the lovely Cornwall Park parkrun. Thank you so much to the De Charmoy family (Lian, Noel & Caitlin) and all other participants for making my Dad and me feel very welcomed at your beautiful parkrun.

On March 5, I wrote to Lian & Noel about my desire to do a parkrun in Auckland. Lian said they usually attend Cornwall Park parkrun and it fit perfectly with me as I am currently chasing the Pirates Club (an unofficial parkrun challenge). I also requested to do the Run Report and my Dad to do Barcode Scanning. Lian said that the volunteer team would welcome it and also offered us a lift from the city to the park.


Noel was right on time to pick us up from the hotel on Saturday morning. It was about a 15 minute drive to Cornwall park and Noel told my Dad and me about the new course. After parking the car, Lian & her daughter Caitlin (who was also RD for the day) gave us a warm welcome.


Caitlin delivered an informative RD briefing and acknowledged everyone’s presence at Cornwall parkrun. People from different backgrounds all came together to run/walk 5km on a Saturday morning proving that the community really backs this local parkrun. This is what I really like to see.  The spirit of Aotearoa was high amongst the parkrunners. The parkrun route is amazing. A three-lap course with grass, trail and tarmac which for me properly defines what a parkrun should be.


I’ll now some stats to this report. 277 runners completed Cornwall Park parkrun. There were 33 first timers of which 13 ran/walked their first ever parkrun. Welcome to the parkrun family and hope to see you returning to Cornwall Park parkrun or any other parkrun for your second parkrun. 44 PBs were recorded. Kudos to those that managed it. Although parkrun is not a race, I’ll just add that Sam Turner was the first male finisher with a time of 17:52 and Naomi Boynton was the first female finisher with a time of 20:44. Congrats to both of them. Also, big Well Done to Laurie Shedden on joining the parkrun 100 Club and Laurence Misonne on joining the parkrun 50 Club!


I would also like to thank all 13 volunteers that took their time out to volunteer at Cornwall Park parkrun. Thanks everyone! I managed to tick off Cornwall Park parkrun because of you guys! I’ll just add here that by volunteering at Cornwall Park parkrun, my Dad has now volunteered in 5 different parkrun countries – Malaysia, United Kingdom, France, Australia and New Zealand. I appreciate that my Dad takes off his work and vacations to volunteer at parkrun.


Lastly, I would like to wish Cornwall Park parkrun all the best for the future. Thanks again, Cornwall Park parkrun. I have had a blast!
