TWO Parkrun events in Hampshire this weekend have been shelved due to the storms and torrential rain.

The Winchester and Eastleigh events, which normally start at 9am on Saturday, will not take place this weekend.

A statement from Winchester Parkrun said: “Regrettably we have taken the decision to cancel Saturday’s Parkrun and give the course another week to recover.

“We hope to resume on Saturday, January 13, if at all possible.

“Thanks for your ongoing patience.”

Eastleigh Parkrun said: “We have made the decision to cancel this Saturdays run due to the volume of rain there has been this week.

“Drier weather is forecast from Saturday so we are hopeful that resting the course this week will minimise the churn on the route and we’ll be back the following weekend.

“Thanks very much for your understanding, why not try a little Parkrun tourism this weekend?”
