Dulwich Park Runners May Newsletter

Happy May Everyone!

The warm weather is very welcome and has spurred members onto some amazing runs!

Alice ran a super time at the Copenhagen Marathon on 5 May.  Anton tackled the Brecon Beacons Marathon on 4 May – just a little elevation there! Darren ran the Newcastle Gateshead marathon last weekend. Charlie ran the Leeds half marathon in warm weather this weekend (pic below). Gary S bravely took on the 53 miles of the West Highland Way at the end of April. Congratulations to them all!

Our beginners graduated, with many thanks to everyone who supported them and we welcome them on our regular Tuesday and Sunday runs now!

And with thanks to Chris, we began the hotly contested Parkrun Ladder contest with a massive turnout and a sea of green and white in last weekend’s run.

We also had some beautiful runs in the parks, especially enjoying Peckham’s wisteria!

Upcoming Dates

Remember it’s our 1 mile Club Championship on 21st May at 7.30pm in Dulwich Park, with drinks afterwards. If you’d like to help please what’s app or email Lucy at races@dulwichparkrunners.co.uk.

Reminder that the Dino Dash is 12th June in Crystal Palace Park, we’ll be back in touch when registration is open. 

The Dulwich Runners Midsummer Relays will be held on the evening of Wednesday 19 June. These are 3 x 1 mile (1 lap of Dulwich Park). We always have a good turnout for this and it’s a good fun evening. Details coming soon about how to enter.

And a reminder of some dates later in the year to celebrate our 40th anniversary! On August 18th we are having a family day of events on the Dulwich College track with picnics. On October 6th we hold our first even public running event in Dulwich Park with a 5 mile race. And on October 26th we will be having a big 40th party at the Griffin venue in Dulwich Village.

And if you’re at a loose end on Saturday 18th May there’s a few of us going to the ceilidh as part of Dulwich Festival – details on their website.

Please help us shape the future of DPR Sunday Social Runs!


We have 3 very simple and very quick questions, that we would like all club members to answer – in order to help us understand more about what club members may want from our Sunday runs!

Please note even if you do not wish to ever take part on Sundays – your insights and reflections are still very important in helping shape the future of this part of the clubs identity and output.


So regardless of how much you currently do or do not take part in the Sunday Social Runs, we really want to hear from all of you – so please click here!     https://forms.office.com/pages/responsepage.aspx?id=1BEf3hSVU0uubx8YbGDv-9craNOFYOxKmeIt726pPU9UNFhZWFBBMTZXMU84QlBKODhQQlI2MElYWC4u


See you next time, happy running!
