Canada Coronavirus update 9th March 2022


We continue to review provincial and local restrictions which affect the staging of parkrun events.  These restrictions are changing frequently so while we have the following announcement to make, please note that they may change with a short amount of notice.


Events in Nova Scotia can resume from 26th March 2022. This does not guarantee your local event will be on, so please check on the relevant event news page or social media channel.


This means that all provinces where we operate parkruns are able to do so under relaxed restrictions.  This will be the last COVID-19 update for Canada unless there are tighter restrictions implemented in future.


We still have some events unable to re-open so please be patient with events and event teams while we work with each set of unique circumstances.  We will continue to work with all involved to ensure your local event is open safely and appropriately.
