Happy New Year parkrunners, I hope your resolutions are going well.
We should be running as normal this weekend, but with weather warnings for the latter part of the week please keep an eye out for advance cancellations via email (if you are opted into our volunteer emails) or last minute cancellations via our social media channels. The safety of our runners and volunteers is most important so if we feel the course is unsafe we may need to cancel on the day.
