parkrun targets Saturday 24 July
An announcement today from parkrun plus that from the government makes it highly likely that we will now finally see parkrun re-emerge, phoenix-like from the ashes in just over 5 weeks time.
Can’t wait…can you?
Following the announcement this evening from the Prime Minister, confirming a delay to Step 4 of the Roadmap until Monday 19 July 2021, it is now our intention that 5k events in England will restart on Saturday 24 July.
A huge amount of work has been done in recent weeks to ensure we have permission to return from the large majority of landowners. Whilst this delay is disappointing, we respect the fact that a significant number of these permissions were contingent on the country moving into Step 4, and we will therefore target a new reopening date of Saturday 24 July.
