Harold Wood Running Club members are delighted that the Raphael Park parkrun has been given the go ahead to return by the local council.

Unfortunately with the increasing Covid rates in the UK the government has delayed the easing of restrictions and thus parkrun will now work towards reopening on Saturday, July 24.

A club statement said: "Well done to those green team members who supported the restarting test event in Raphael Park on Saturday."

This week the club will be running the second Elvis race at the Olympic Park in Stratford.

Members are back running regularly, under Covid restrictions, and they meet Monday to Friday at 6.30pm at Harold Wood Park.
