Parkrun results - a tip to shortcut a problem on the site

For some reason the Parkrun results link doesn't seem to be refreshing (at least for the Edinburgh one). I picked up this tip from the Facebook page: "For anyone who is impatiently waiting for the day's results here is a wee trick. Even though the results don't appear to be up on the site, if you go to your own personal record of runs (click on your name from a previous run) then quite often the new result will appear there. From that you can get the full results for today's race. Well at least this seems to work for me."

You can also update your Parkrun details to get a text direct.

  • Thanks I am desperate to see my name in print with time beside it Hopefully they will get it sorted out soon

  • Try this: Looks like you were 428/440 but if you sort on the Age graded column which give a % score allowing for age etc I'd guess there were at least 50 below you.

    Or click on the results tab in the middle of the bar at the top right of the Parkrun site. That brings up a drop down menu. Go to search at the end of that list and type in your name. It will give your stats and your should be able to click on any event in the table and go to the full results for it.

  • Found full results thanks Wilma Not sure I totally understand age grading score -- does that mean that 'really' my position was actually higher than 428

  • I'm not sure I follow it either although there's an explanation on the Parkrun site. By sorting on that field you "beat" a man who finish 346 nearly 10 minutes ahead of you!

  • Wow Better make sure this doesn't all go to my head Thanks again for all you're help

  • Think I just identifed your run Fitfor60. You beat a lot more people than me. There were so many people running at Edinburgh. You probably wasted minutes getting through the start so you were actually even faster than it says! Well done.

  • Thanks I am more than happy with my time BUT scarcely I already thinking maybe if I don't start at back might be few seconds quicker next time --- but I don't went to get on way of fast runners Agh!!! What's happening to me

  • You can also sign up for the sms results service (think it's on a link in the email they send you)

  • Thanks will do

  • Just seen that I came first in my age group in my first park run three weeks ago and second in the one on Saturday.! Statistics can paint a rather false picture!
