Parkruns cancelled

Message from Cara Fordyce - 28 June 2021

The announcement from the President last night concerning the latest lockdown regulations has of course sadly impacted parkrun. As a result we will have to cancel all the parkruns that are currently open at least for the next two weeks. You will not have to put these cancellations into the system as parkrun global will do this for all the events.

Hopefully we will be able to start them again soon and hopefully others will follow in due course.
Thanks for your understanding

Sand River Parkrun to remain open

The good news is that Parkrun SA has decided that our parkrun will remain open.
However, we need to ensure that the number of persons attending our parkrun remains below 100 to comply with the latest Covid 19 regulations.
The number of Sand River Parkrun registered members that have participated since we have re-opened is less than 40 but the number of participants at our parkrun during the last three Saturdays have been 82, 72 and 85 respectively - the increased numbers are because parkrunners from other centres are travelling to Virginia in order to do a parkrun despite Bruce Fordyce's appeal for parkrunners not to travel to other venues that are open.
A big concern for Sand River Parkrun is that, should more and more parkrunners travel to our parkrun, the number of participants will exceed 100 which will result in Sand River Parkrun having to close which will be unfair and undeserved towards our parkrun.
We, therefore, appeal to parkrunners from other venues to act responsibly and refrain from travelling to Virginia to participate at Sand River Parkrun.
