The organisation's Global Chief Operating Officer has confirmed the decision to suspend events around the world has been extended.

Last week it was announced all parkrun events across the UK had been cancelled up until the end of March in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Participants of the popular 5k event and junior 2k event in Churchill Gardens were warned they were likely to miss their parkrun fix for much longer.

Now it's been confirmed that all parkrun events around the world will continue to be suspended until at least the end of April.

Global Chief Operating Officer Tom Williams explained the decision admitting its "a difficult time" for the parkrun community.

"Today’s update is to notify you that all parkrun events will now continue to be suspended until at least the end of April. This is in order to keep all parkrun countries following the same timeline for the moment, although we do expect suspensions to go beyond April."
