Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun on 14/07/2018

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun

Alice Holt parkrun has been cancelled by the Forestry Commission because work being carried out by their builders has resulted in part of our course being closed over the weekend.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Rushmoor parkrun is also cancelled for the whole of July.

 

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun on 24/03/18

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun

Due to another event taking place at Alice Holt Forest on 24th March, there will be no parkrun.

We've also been advised that Guildford parkrun is OFF on this date. You can see if any other parkruns in our area are not going ahead by looking at http://wiki.parkrun.info/index.php/Cancellations#United_Kingdom

It would be sensible to check individual social media pages before setting out to any parkrun as cancellations can occur at any point and may take time to appear on the main page.

Have a great weekend, see you back in the Forest as usual on 31st for our Easter weekend special!

 

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun on 03/03/2018

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun

The Forestry Commission (who own Alice Holt forest) have decided that the trails are unlikely to be safe after the expected heavy snowfall and have therefore cancelled our event.

You can see if any other parkruns in our area are going ahead by looking at http://wiki.parkrun.info/index.php/Cancellations#United_Kingdom

It would be sensible to check individual social media pages before setting out as cancellations can occur at any point and may take time to appear on the main page.

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun 14/01/2017

Cancellation of Alice Holt parkrun

Unfortunately the Forestry Commission have just called and we are OFF tomorrow, 14th January 2017

They are worried because the are swathes of sheet ice on several paths and they feel that given the shade and low temperatures, this ice will not have melted by tomorrow morning.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
