More events have been returning and we have around half of events either back, or scheduled to be back in the coming weeks.
It was great to see the launch of Barton Trail parkrun earlier in August, and we have had good progress in BC and Ontario with returning events.
We still await for opportunities in Nova Scotia where restrictions can allow us to continue, and larger events in Ontario are currently unable to restart.
Many factors can determine if a parkrun can restart or not, as conditions which health authorities base their decisions on can fluctuate. We also have to make sure our events re-open responsibility and where appropriate. We have the following scheduled up to the end of September, but do note that these can change and you should check the news page and social media of your local event to make sure:

If you don’t see your event then please be patient with them as they work towards a restart, and also please recognise that some events may need to cancel in future. Our volunteer driven event teams are often in constant dialogue with their landowner and conditions to return can be out of their control. Not all provinces have relaxed restrictions enough to allow for a restart of some parkrun events too, so we must wait until events are legal in those places.
In the meantime we are really happy to see the return of so many events, and the launch of Moussette parkrun in Gatineau (Quebec) and New York Central Fitness Trail parkrun in Russell (Ontario) this September.

All the roles are explained to you on the day, it’s super easy, fun and rewarding. Plus you get to feel a part…
