parkrun New Zealand COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update: 18 September


The New Zealand Government has agreed in principle to move to Alert Level 1 at 11:59pm on 21 September, for all locations other than Auckland. Should this date remain unchanged when the final decision is announced, we intend to reopen events in New Zealand, with the exception of the five events in Auckland, on Saturday 26 September under our COVID-19 Framework. This date is subject to change, depending on the Government announcement.


We will continue to monitor the Alert level in Auckland and at such a time the Government restrictions allow us to reopen Millwater, Barry Curtis, Cornwall, Western Springs and Hobsonville Point parkruns we will confirm directly with these event teams.


Thanks, as always, for your support and patience.
