Limited Car Parking Spaces within Cutteslowe Park (next 6-8 weeks)

There are car park re-surfacing works being carried out on the Harbord Road Car Park at Cutteslowe Park, which will ultimately mean more parking spaces all year. This means the over flow and sections of the normal car park are out of bounds due to construction. To ease pressure on the limited car spaces for both us and other park users, we'd encourage everyone who can to use alternative methods of travel (walk/run/cycle/car share/park & ride) in the coming weeks.

As ever, we ask that you avoid parking on neighbouring roads our of respect for local residents.

Many thanks!

Good news! 

Will (one of tomorrow's Run Directors) inspected the course this afternoon, and although there are mud and puddles galore, the conditions have improved greatly over the last week and we are planning to go ahead tomorrow morning!

It's unlikely to be a PB week that's for sure - as you can see from the photos, it is still very wet and muddy so please take extra care and be mindful of other runners and park users.

See you all bright and early with your barcodes!

CANCELLATION NOTICE Saturday 7th April.

The Oxford parkrun team have inspected the course today and even though the ground conditions have improved from last week, there are still extended areas of standing water in the narrow and uneven sections of the coruse and there is further rain forecast. Therefore, on safety grounds and our duty of care to other park users we have made the difficult decision to cancel this weeks parkrun. We appreciate this is disappointing, but we wanted to provide plenty of notice so participants can alter their plans. If you would still like to volunteer or attend other parkrun locations this weekend, please be sure to check parkrun websites (Abingdon and Witney are also cancelled this week).

We will continue to monitor this upcoming week and hope to resume next Saturday.

Thank you for your understanding, we hope to see you next week.

Therefore, on safety grounds and our duty of care to other park users we have made the difficult decision to cancel this weeks parkrun. We appreciate this is disappointing. We will continue to monitor this upcoming week and hope to resume next Saturday.

Christmas Day parkrun

We are delighted to announce that we will operate an additional parkrun on Christmas Day for the first time this year. There are only two days in the year when parkruns can occur on days other than Saturday, the other being New Year’s Day.  Christmas is traditionally an occasion when people come together to spend time with friends and family and we are looking forward to the opportunity of seeing our parkrun family on Christmas morning.

We plan to start the parkrun at the usual time (9:00 a.m.) so that both runners and marshals can complete the run without impacting too much on the day. Festive outfits and lots of good cheer are most welcome.

THERE WILL BE SOME TOILET FACILITIES OPEN ON THE DAY AND THESE MUST BE USED WITHOUT EXCEPTION.  THESE WILL BE MORE LIMITED THAN USUAL SO PELASE COME PREPARED...

We look forward to seeing as many of you as we can on Christmas Day. If you are able to volunteer to help support us, please email in at oxfordhelpers@parkrun.com

NOTE - We are not planning to operate a New Year’s Day parkrun this year.
