Nonsuch parkrun women and girls participation day. Tomorrow 7th March.

Having inspected the course this morning and with the sun doing it's best work today we are confident that Nonsuch parkrun will take place tomorrow.
There is a lot of standing water along the avenue and the large puddle just after the start is a cause for concern but providing all runners take care and take notice of the RD's briefing notes all will be well.

 

Event Cancellation 29th February.

Nonsuch parkrun is cancelled tomorrow 29th February.
Unfortunately you are going to have to wait another 28 years until you have the opportunity to run on the 29th February. I'm afraid we have yet again been beaten by the weather and this week it's Storm Jorge.
Let's hope that we can hold our International Women's Day parkrun next Saturday 7th March.

 

Saturday 29th Feb parkrun latest

Course Inspection, due to current weather conditions, to take place on Friday morning and a decision will be posted by 1300 tomorrow as to whether the parkrun on Sat 29th will go ahead or not. Please share this note as widely as possible and keep an eye out here for further updates.

 

International Women’s Day parkrun: 7th March 2020

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for further details.

Research shows us (parkrun) that, across the world, women are less likely than men to take part in parkrun. Despite the fact that females make 54% of registrations, they are less likely than men to take part in parkrun and to continue participating. IWD parkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate in parkrun events all over the world.

 

Cancellation of parkrun 22nd Feb

It will come as no great surprise to those who have been anywhere near Nonsuch Park this week that our hand has been forced by the weather and we will be cancelling this Saturday's parkrun on 22nd February. As we have stressed we are not only looking out for the welfare of the runners but also the Park and we don't want to make conditions any worse. We are determined that we don't have to cancel Saturday 29th and have to wait another 28 years before a parkrun falls on the 29th Feb again so if we can give the park every chance of being in a fit state for next Saturday it's in everbodies interest to do so. Please share this post as widely as possible and keep an eye to this page throughout the course of the next week.

 

Saturday 15th Feb – Event Cancellation

Thanks to everyone for your understanding today in the reasoning behind our decision to cancel our parkrun this morning. I hope you managed to get your parkrun fix elsewhere and let us know where you visited as a tourist. I'm sure the Park was grateful for the week off and hopefully we will be back as usual next Saturday but please keep an eye on our postings for any updates during the week. I should like to extend a big thanks on behalf of us all to the volunteers this morning who were posted around the car parks and meeting point to ensure everyone knew we had cancelled our parkrun. They included Pauline Sparkes, Lousie Mcallister, Anne Carter, John Bleackley, Rob Pinchbeck, Gerald King and Paul Randall.

 

Event Cancellation 15th February

Nonsuch Parkrun is CANCELLED for tomorrow 15th February. Due to current conditions and the forecast for the weekend it has been decided for the welfare of the Park and the parkrunners that we will not go ahead with our parkrun tomorrow. Please share this as widely as possible and we hope to be back as normal for next Saturday.

 

COURSE INSPECTION – Friday 14th Feb.

COURSE INSPECTION - tomorrow am we will inspect the course and see if conditions are suitable for Nonsuch parkrun to go ahead on Saturday 15th. We will post an update by 1pm tomorrow on our social media channels and on our parkrun news page. Please keep an eye out for our decision and it might be worth making a Plan B in the meantime. Please share this post as widely as possible.

 

Car Parking at Nonsuch Park

CAR PARKING - Whilst 2020 has started with a huge upsurge in numbers of participants at parkrun which is great to see this has brought it's own issues namely with the pressures on the car parks in Nonsuch Park. This has been brought to our attention by the relevant authorities that manage the Parks in the borough and we have been requested to address the situation. In the first instance we request all those taking part to try and avoid using cars by trying other forms of transport if possible. If you can't avoid using a car then have you thought about car sharing. What do you think about the idea of trying to get people from the same post code together and see if they can give each other lifts? If you have any thoughts on this or other suggestions then please make these known by responding here or discussing with any of the team at the gazebo before or after the run. We will have car park marshals trying to ensure that people park with consideration but you can do your bit about giving some thought to how you get to the Park. I appreciate there are a number of other groups who use the Park on a Saturday morning and we all contribute to the pressure on the Car Parks but we need to take a proactive role on this issue.
