This morning parkrun cancelled parkrun in several more countries including the UK. These are the words.

“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.”

One day previously ERYCC cancelled all events at Sewerby Park until the 31st May2020. Obviously the two dates do not match and even if parkrun issued a restart in April the closure of Sewerby Park to events may overide this. The timing situation is very much open to speculation and we can only hope that parkrun resumes as soon as is possible.

Keep informed by using the global parkrun website. (There is a link on this page above)

Please all look after yourselves and family especially in regard to many of our older athletes and try to stay fit. We are lucky in that we have acres of beach and much open countryside on our doorstep where we do not have to diectly contact each other. Stay safe.
