Still no green light for parkrun in Cork City...Sat 6th Feb 2016
About a week ago, the Cork City Council removed permission for the weekly 5km parkrun in Tramore Valley Park due to concerns over traffic. It has just been announced that nothing has changed and there will be no parkrun next Saturday the 7th of February.
I suspect that nothing may happen with this until the Operation Transformation television programme has ended and the publicity from it has subsided. Perhaps then the weekly parkrun can get back on track again?
The artists impression below shows what the park is supposed to look like eventually. However, if they can't even cope with 500 people now, how can all those extra facilities be developed? As someone quipped recently, it's like a headline from the satirical news website Waterford Whispers...."Weekly parkrun cancelled due to popularity".
