Welcome to Running Challenges! This Chrome extension / Firefox Add-on allows you to play games with your parkrun results, including tourist challenges and tracking your volunteering at parkrun. Each completed challenge gives you a badge on your profile to show off to all your friends!
To use this extension you must be using the Chrome/Firefox Web Browser on a laptop/desktop computer, or Firefox for Android - it is not available to install on Apple iPhones/iPads. The extension is published in the Chrome and Firefox webstores, see the getting started page for more detailed instructions.

It is becoming quite a challenge in itself to reply to every comment or email about why Żary parkrun no longer counts towards the Alphabeteer A-Z challenge. It has come up so many times now that it is worthy of a blog post - hopefully this can set the record straight, with all the facts.
