Parkrun finally returns to four Sheffield parks this weekend

The popular Parkrun events are returning to four Sheffield venues on July 24 as organisers pomise a grand new adventure.

Tuesday, 20th July 2021, 1:00 pm

The Saturday morning 5k events were cancelled more than a year ago as the pandemic made mass runs impossible.

But the event is to return to Endcliffe, Concord, Graves and Manor Field parks at 9am after Parkrun UK was granted permission.

Organisers of the Endcliffe Park event announced its return via their Facebook page www.facebook.com/endcliffeparkrun/ which says: “It's official, we are in our final countdown for parkrun returns. It's going to be a grand new adventure.”

They are promising a new course and an event which is Covid compliant. Another post reads: “It is getting really close to that start of parkrun being back again, hooray

Volunteers are still in hot demand, so if you’d like to volunteer please email [email protected] Due to COVID guidance and our new course we do need a few more volunteers than normal.”
