Doddington Hall parkrun is cancelled on 4 July 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Parkrun cancelled until further notice

In line with public health advice, parkrun have taken the decision to close all events across the United Kingdom until further notice. The latest update is that all parkrun events will now continue to be suspended until at least the end of April. This is in order to keep all parkrun countries following the same timeline for the moment, although we do expect suspensions to go beyond April. Hang in there folks, we will get through this!

Events Cancelled

Remaining active is incredibly important, and parkrun uk are working on ways to encourage and support that during the pandemic, however please do not arrange group gatherings at Doddington Hall parkrun while events are suspended as this may compromise resuming activities when the current pandemic has passed.

Thanks for your continued support, we wish all our parkrunners a safe passage through this time and please keep checking in for updates via this page; facebook; twitter and keep an eye out for updates in your inbox from parkrun HQ.

Doddington Hall Parkrun – Event #8 14th March 2020

Today, we had no storm accompanying us for event number 8 at Doddington Hall parkrun! I'm sure it wasn't missed by the 17 fantastic volunteers, nor the 199 people who ran, jogged and walked the course.

It all went nice and smoothly today! We saw 58 first-timers and a whopping 63 recorded new Personal Bests! Dave Hunter was the first male runner home in new parkrun PB of 16:40. And, first female home was Catherine Charlton with 20:28! Amazing effort.

Representatives of 33 different clubs took part. We had a couple of tourists, and a special mention to Janice Davidson who completed for 250th parkrun, and her 100th tourist parkrun! That's some serious commitment!

Today we teamed up with This Girl Can! in celebration of International Women's Day and female participation in physical activity. There were a few t-shirts around in honour of the day and the occasional purple garment in the crowd.

Thank you to anyone who brought along a female friend/relative, encouraged women taking part, volunteered, smiled, made others feel welcome and generally added to the friendly atmosphere. It truly takes a community to create a parkrun that everyone, including those 110 first timers, are eager to come back to! Thank you :)

Ciara, Dennis and Jorge – no storm system will disrupt the Doddington Hall parkrun magic not even on a 'Leap Day'

This month seems to have been relentless with one storm system after another, yet our fantastic team of hardy volunteers brace all weather conditions to ensure Doddington Hall parkrun remains on for our community.

This Saturday was a special event in the parkrun calendar. It was the first Saturday 'Leap Day' parkrun in the 15 year history of parkrun. Interestingly the next Saturday 'Leap Day' parkrun will not happen again until 2048. Hopefully we should all be carbon neutral by then!89143728_579103182681175_3605487691937873920_n

Please bring along a female friend, colleague, or family member and walk, jog, run or volunteer together for #IWDparkrun

Another windy Doddington Hall parkrun…when will this end?

Apologies for the late run report, life somehow got in the way!

First and foremost a big round of applause to Lee for his first weekend as RD. We think he did a fantastic job even if Tom was insistent on sabotaging the timing. Reminder don’t let Tom time keep, EVER.
