Singleton parkrun is cancelled on 3 October 2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

2018 Christmas and New Year’s Day

Singleton parkrun will not be holding extra events on Christmas day or New Year's Day this year. However, a lot of other parkruns around Australia will be. New Year's Day is the only day you are able to record a double parkun, so why not give it a go.

Here’s a list of other local and Australian parkruns who are staging extra events:

The rules of delivery that will be enforced globally are:
No doubles allowed on Christmas Day (25th December)
Doubles allowed on New Year's Day (1st January), but no trebles.

It will be parkrun as usual every Saturday in Singleton over the Christmas/New Year period.
