Event Cancellation – 20th September 2014

Good Afternoon Green Point parkrunners,

it is with heavy hearts that we have to inform everybody that the parkrun event at Green Point on the 20th is cancelled.

Unfortunately, due to the hive of activity that will be surrounding the stadium and Green Point area brought on by the Cape Town Marathon, we will be unable to safely execute our event. There will be several areas of conflict on our and the CT Marathon event routes which have proven to be impossible barriers to navigate which has led to the decision to outright cancel the event.

If you would still like to take part in a parkrun event, please join our sisters runs at; Big Bay parkrun, Root44 parkrun, Fish Hoek parkrun and Rondebosch Common parkrun. They will be operating as normal and will welcome all of you with open arms!

You can also take part in CT Marathon Peace Relay!

Lastly, we will be organising a social 5k along the promenade. The run will start at the regular parkrun kickoff time of 8am from the Mouille Point Lighthouse and will be an out-and-back along the promenade, to the Sea Point pools and back. We'll be going for coffee at Shift Espresso Bar afterwards, where parkrunners presenting their parkrun barcode will receive a discount on their coffee purchase!

Regular parkrun activity at Green Point parkrun will resume on Saturday 27th September.
