Sadly, we are going to have to cancel again this week, as the course is still waterlogged and muddy, and the forecast is for more rain.
This is especially disappointing this week, as we had hoped to celebrate International Women's Day, but we have decided to postpone our celebrations to a future date to be decided as the weather and the course will dictate.
Don't forget to check for cancellations if you plan to visit another parkrun event this week!
After a course inspection by Mark this morning we have sadly decided to cancel again this week. The course is still very muddy and slippery and there are large puddles on the course.
Regrettfully we have cancelled tomorrow's event. Standing water and mud on the course are causing hazardous conditions coupled with Storm Dennis which is expected to move into the area overnight so we have cancelled on safety grounds. Sorry folks!
Abingdon parkrun will be joining parkruns worldwide in a celebration of female participation.
It will be a female-focused parkrun celebration and will take place on Saturday 7th March 2020, the day before International Women’s Day.
In England, #IWDparkrun will be supported by This Girl Can, a campaign created by parkrun's partner Sport England.
We're hoping to fill the roster with an all-female cast, so please let us know if you'd like to be involved!
Men are still most welcome to join in as usual!

It will probably come as no surprise to learn that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this week's event, the 18th January.
The course isn't safe for the broad range of runners, joggers, walkers, and volunteers who would be participating this week.
The route is muddy, slippery, and full of puddles, and needs a chance to drain, dry out, and recover.
