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…

There are just a few days to go before this Saturday’s reopening of Cape Pembroke Lighthouse parkrun on the Falkland Islands, as well as all three events in Australia’s Northern Territory.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update: 1 September

Those of you who have followed these weekly updates since early April will know that, whilst we wouldn’t rule anything out, our initial preference has been that we would only start entire parkrun countries at a time. This was based on a number of factors, but largely that the complexity of supporting numerous varied regulations,…
