Welcome to everyone on Saturday March 7th to encourage more women and girls to participate in sport and getting active - we truly welcome walkers, talkers and runners, wheelers, signers, Visually Impaired and EVERYONE to our parkrun at Evesham. Please do encourage any female relatives and friends to come along and take part, volunteering or walking/running or spectating and cheering everyone along on Saturday March 7th - be there from 8.30 onwards and join us for coffee, tea, legendary bread pudding and breakfast at Raphaels restaurant afterwards.
The river is continuing to rise, and is forecast to continue doing so at least until Friday lunchtime, so with regret we are cancelling parkrun this weekend.
If you're looking for an alternative, check carefully. Worcester Pitchcroft, Stratford, Tewkesbury & Churchfields are all cancelled. Atlantis are doing their best with the buckets. Cheltenham is OK. Or try Moreton, Worcester or Arrow Valley. But check the relevant Facebook page / website for updates, AND the route you might need to take to get there.
The Battle of Evesham is taking place on 3rd August (just a re-enactment, don't worry) and will be using Corporation Meadow so we are unable to run. Evesham Vale Running Club are planning a 'tourism' visit to Worcester Pitchcroft instead, so you could join them.
We also have to cancel on 24th August because of the Angling Festival which takes place all the way along our route.
It's been a bit of an unlucky few weeks for us with the recent cancellation in July too, but weather permitting we're hoping for a long spell of weekly parkrunning from the 31st August onwards.
Tewkesbury (11.1m), Worcester (11.5m), Stratford-upon-Avon (12.7m), Cheltenham (13.3m), Fire Service College (13.8m), Worcester Pitchcroft (13.9m), Churchfields Farm (14.7m) *note, Churchfields is cancelled on 3rd Aug), Arrow Valley (15.2m), Gloucester North (18.7m)
