COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 24 November

It’s been another week of significant progress for the parkrun family around the world.   Last Saturday saw more than 12,400 people walk, jog, run or volunteer at 117 events across five parkrun countries. There were also almost 600 first timers, and we’d particularly like to extend a warm welcome to those taking what might…

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 17 November

It was wonderful to see events start back in Namibia at the weekend, the fifth parkrun territory to welcome back events since the Coronavirus pandemic paused parkrun across the world in March.   We were looking forward to reopening in South Australia this coming Saturday, but sadly new infections and a subsequent two week state-wide…

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 10 November

Whilst progress can appear to be slow (or even non-existent) in many parts of the world at the moment, we feel it’s important we continue to celebrate small milestones, and to share the positive steps the parkrun family…

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 3 November

With the reopening of events in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), Guernsey and the Isle of Man last weekend, we saw 103 events and over 10,000 participants at parkruns across four countries.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 20 October

With the reopening of 12 events in Tasmania last Saturday, we saw over 5,000 different people walk, jog, run, or volunteer across 45 parkrun events worldwide. Although this represents only 2% of events, 5,000 participants is a significant milestone that took us five-and-a-half years to achieve the first time around.   Sadly, due to increased…

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 13 October

As 2020 rumbles on, and with it the global efforts to navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic, it’s increasingly the case that people around the world are being impacted in vastly different ways. At parkrun we see evidence of this every single day, where some of our communities are largely back to a pre-virus normal, whilst others…
