COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update: 11 August

On Friday last week we published our provisional COVID-19 Framework, describing how parkrun events are likely to return where there remains an underlying level of the virus.   We intentionally published the Framework in advance of it being appropriate to open any of the 21 parkrun countries that remain closed, to enable us to progress…

Phenomenal Avery Beach

How insight guides the way

As the growth of parkrun continues apace (even during a worldwide pandemic) understanding the views and attitudes of 7 million registered parkrunners is not only critical to the organisation’s decision making, but also incredibly challenging.

Mise à jour COVID-19 (Coronavirus) : Mardi 28 juillet

Si la reprise des événements parkrun en Nouvelle-Zélande a été relativement simple en raison de l’éradication du virus dans ce pays, il est clair que ce ne sera probablement pas le cas pour le reste…
