COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update: 23 June


In last week’s update we confirmed that all parkrun New Zealand events will reopen on Saturday 4 July and we are working closely with event teams to achieve this.


To support the Ministry of Health’s NZ COVID Tracer app, each parkrun event will display a QR code poster to help walkers, joggers, runners and volunteers keep track of where they have been. The QR code can be scanned by the individuals using their own NZ COVID Tracer app.


Scanning the QR code poster helps with contract tracing and will be presented at the event, on the event Facebook page, and on the news section of the event website, should you not take your smartphone to parkrun.


Information and links to download the NZ COVID Tracer app can be found on the Ministry of Health website. If you don’t have a smartphone you can still register online with the Ministry of Health to share your latest information.


Thank you for your continued support, patience, and understanding.


We are getting through this, together.
