parkrun Restart delayed until 24th July

Following the Government annoucement yesterday delaying the easing of restrictions in England, please see announcement below from parkrun confirming that parkruns in England will not now restart until the 24th July (this includes Shorne Woods parkrun).  The good news is, this feels a bit more like a when, rather than if, we return...


Following the announcement this evening from the Prime Minister, confirming a delay to Step 4 of the Roadmap until Monday 19 July 2021, it is now our intention that 5k events in England will restart on Saturday 24 July.

A huge amount of work has been done in recent weeks to ensure we have permission to return from the large majority of landowners. Whilst this delay is disappointing, we respect the fact that a significant number of these permissions were contingent on the country moving into Step 4, and we will therefore target a new reopening date of Saturday 24 July.
