Events on pause for BC, NS, ON, and QC as of 25/Dec/21


Due to recent announcements from provinces across the country enforcing tighter restrictions, we will be pausing all events in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia for four weeks from this Saturday 25th December 2021, to 15th January 2022 inclusive.  The situation will be reviewed again in early January.

Take care, keep being active, and we look forward to welcoming you back to parkrun soon.
