Update on parkrun cancellations

Latest message from parkrun:
Dear all,
Today’s update is to notify you that all parkrun events will now continue to be suspended until at least the end of April. This is in order to keep all parkrun countries following the same timeline for the moment, although we do expect suspensions to go beyond April.
Since deciding to close our events we have been working incredibly hard to action that decision, understand the implications of making it, and provide immediate support to parkrun communities around the world. And, with all events suspended, we are now able to begin work developing our strategy for supporting our communities during this difficult time and, one day, re-launching.
Going forward we will be publishing a global parkrun update every Tuesday (UK time), on the parkrun.com news page.
We will get through this, together.
Tom Williams
Chief Operating Officer

Minehead parkrun is cancelled up to the end of March

All parkrun events in the United Kingdom have been suspended with immediate effect due to the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation. At this stage we have cancelled events up to the end of March. Please follow our communications channels for ongoing updates. parkrun’s global position is published and will be updated here.

Remaining active is incredibly important, and parkrun is working on ways to encourage and support that, however please do not arrange group gatherings at your parkrun venues whilst parkrun events are suspended.


Calling all Parkrunners….Can you complete a Parkrun in less than 50mins?

If so then Your Country Needs YOU!.

The Vitality Running World Cup is running at the moment. Everyone signed up in their country who completes 3km or more at a pace of less than 10mins per km counts towards their country's running total. The country's total is then adjusted to compensate for the total population and the smart phone usage in that country.

The UK made it through the qualifiers last week in 4th place after South Africa, Smaller European Countries and Namibia. So if we are going to win we need many more runners to sign up and log runs.

This weekend is the 1st 16 round, next weekend quarter finals, weekend after semis and 1st weekend in April is final and 3rd place play off.

If being able to say you are running for your country isn't incentive enough for you then Vitality will set you targets for your running each week, and if you hit them they will vaccinate a child against TB with UNICEF.
Hopefully one of these is reason enough.
