COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update 20 April

COVID_APR_WEEK_4_V2_NEWS

Last weekend we welcomed back a further 29 2k events in England, taking the total number of junior parkruns to 79 with over 8,000 people walking, running and volunteering with us once more.

 

With the addition of these events, we were delighted to see a post-COVID record attendance globally, with over 66,000 participants at 597 events worldwide.

 

This coming Sunday we are set to have a further 27 junior events return in England, which will bring the tally of junior events over 100, with many more events set to return over the following weeks.

 

Wherever we have been able to return, events are operating successfully, closely following the COVID-19 Framework, and with participation nearly identical to pre-Coronavirus levels.

 

And where we remain closed we are keeping a close eye on the situation, with a view to returning as soon as the time is right.

 

We are getting through this together.

 

Thanks for your continued support.
