parkrun Cancellation


Ecos parkrun will be cancelled tomorrow as some of the paths are flooded. Even if it stops raining before the morning the Braid River may continue to rise and it will take a while for the water to drain away from the paths. 

Lots of you will still want to get your Saturday run and the forecast looks like the morning will be fair. There will be an option of running two laps of a route over the Millennium bridge (the curvy one) through the showgrounds and back along the road through the park. While there will be leaders for the run this is not an official parkrun and will not be timed or have refreshments. It will start at 9.30 from the Events area where we usually assemble. There will be traffic on the roads so runners will need to take care of themselves and their children. 

Alternatively tomorrow could be the perfect time to try out one of the four parkruns in Belfast if you haven't already. We'll not be offended and you'll get a great welcome at the other parkruns. Details of all are at the link below. Victoria starts at 9.00, Waterworks, Queen's and Falls at 9.30. If you want to arrange car pooling you can make arrangements between yourselves by posting on our Facebook page. A handy meeting point is Ballee Park and Ride (beside Donnelly and Taggart Garage on Antrim Road).
