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)
** Evesham parkrun CANCELLED - tomorrow, 13th July **
Sorry for the late notice, but we have had to cancel tomorrow's parkrun.
There is a caravaning event on the meadow, and whilst we've been able to work around it in the past it's much bigger than in previous years. There is also very little parking, and we're not willing to compromise the safety of our runners and volunteers, nor the goodwill of the owners of the private land we run on.
Instead... EVRC have already scheduled a 'parkrun tourism' outing to Kingsway, Gloucester - you would be welcome to join them even if you're not a club member.
Alternatively, you could also try:
Tewkesbury (11.1m), Worcester (11.5m), Stratford-upon-Avon (12.7m), Cheltenham (13.3m), Fire Service College (13.8m), Worcester Pitchcroft (13.9m) - also cancelled, Churchfields Farm (14.7m), Arrow Valley (15.2m), Gloucester North (18.7m)
This isn't a decision we take lightly - and it's probably more work to cancel an event than put it on! We're sorry again for cancelling so late, but we can only react to the circumstances in front of us.
Enjoy your Saturday morning, wherever you end up.
