All parkruns will remain closed (saw a post on facebook). I will drive a few hours for a parkrun so I guess there is a lot of people like that. A few people I know would have flown to Russia this year to just get there q parkrun. I would imagine tuat the other parkrunners from the bigger parkruns would just overcrowd the smaller parkruns.
It isn’t really about the jogging. It’s more about hanging out with your friends. Why do people travel from jhb to cape town for the 2oceans? You can also just do the distance at homeAll that effort when you could just run on your own. Parkrunners are the CrossFitters of running.
Dlamini Zuma said it was necessary to keep the curfew, which will apply from midnight to 4am, shortened from 10pm to 4am under Level 2, to limit the time people spend at drinking establishments.

“If you recall, we started opening the levels even as numbers were going up because we were forced by our unique situation where there is lots of poverty, unemployment and hunger and so we had to start opening so people can earn a living whilst we try and save lives.
