Homewood parkrun is cancelled on 11 July 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Event Cancelled Saturday March 21st 2020

OK, we only managed to get back for one week before we had to stop again, but I am sure everyone understands why.

We hope to be up and running again as soon as possible, but may be a while. In the mean time, please do try and get some solo running in (but please don't run on a parkrun route on Saturday at 09:00), follow the Government advice regarding Coronavirus, and keep safe and well.

See you soon!

Event Cancelled Saturday March 7th 2020

Unfortunately there will not be a parkrun here at Homewood on Saturday the 7th March due to the ongoing heavy rain causing the football pitch to be waterlogged and creating general flooding around the course, this is partly at the request of the council. Hopefully we will be back again on the 14th March!

First female this week was Tanya BOARDMAN on her visit to Homewood on 26:10 and first male Jonathan MAINWARING on 21:22, well done to everyone for getting round the course today, very muddy conditions made it hard work, we changed the course a little bit to avoid the drop down to the bottom track by the road which was super squelchy.

Thanks so much to everyone who helped move the big wet pile of wood chips from the car park to the bottom track, hopefully this will allow us to use the normal route again next week, depending on how many storms we get, we are still wait for Ellen as Jorge was a Spanish named one, its certainly been wet and windy this Winter which has let us appreciate just how different the woods get as we run round the year.
