Two new parkruns have joined the US family this week: Bear Creek Greenbelt parkrun in Keller, TX and Third Creek Greenway parkrun in Knoxville, TN. More parkruns, the merrier. We are a movement that keeps growing and growing.

The autumn is upon us, the season's change, but some things keep going just as they are, come rain, come sun, come endless summer, come fall and winter, your parkrun weathers all weathers...
