Following discussions with the National Trust Rangers we are having to change to our "Fun" course from this Saturday until such time as the weather improves and allows the ground to dry out. All grass areas are currently "out of bounds" to parkrun.
For those who are not familiar with our "fun" route this uses only the footpaths within the main park and uses the full cafe hill 4 times and up to the south car park 4 times. The start is on the footpath above our normal start line and the finish is next to the Boathouse cafe.
Unfortunately this means we are having to ask any parkrunners who normally run with dogs or buggies that until we return to our normal course you will not be allowed to run with them. We apologise for this but there were some near misses on the two way sections of the footpaths last year. This a difficult decision which your core team has made but the safety of our parkrunners comes first.
With safety in mind can I remind folk that parkrun is NOT a race but a RUN. I know we all like to get good times but please be observant and considerate to your fellow parkrunners on the 2 way stretches of the "Fun" route. We will look to have extra marshals at the 2 way sections to help ensure all goes well.
