Parkrun events will return to Lincolnshire this weekend.

The green light has been given for the return of the most famous mass participation running events across the country and Mass Participations Sports Organisers (MSO) members have worked together to plan protocols and operational solutions that ensure the safe return of mass participation events outdoors.

Events across Lincolnshire and further will resume at 9am on Saturday.

There are 1,073 events around the country to choose from, including at least eight in Yellowbelly county.

Parkruns are free 5k events open all comers. All you have to do to take part is register online at parkrun.org.uk and bring your printed out barcode to the start of the race.

Nick Pearson, CEO of parkrun Global, said: “The work of MSO has ensured our much-loved events can return and we invite everyone to take part – join your local parkrun, enter one of the nation’s iconic events and think about raising funds for the charity of your choice.
