57.5 Days of Pain
Oh where’s that? I was going by the statement issued by parkrun UK?There was an update from sportscotland released 23/12/21, pertaining to the three weeks from 26/12/21:

"• Outdoor Sporting Events
No restriction on participating numbers but guidance relating to spectating is still

applicable and should be followed i.e., total 500 standing or sitting and following

relevant Events guidance. We would also ask partners to ensure all appropriate

safety protocols are applied"

I think parkrun UK highlighted it in a low key way after the turnout at Edinburgh on Xmas day. But 500 anywhere else is unlikely even with higher January numbers.

The risk even if there were 1500 is low anyway.

The start is when people are close and the briefing is minimised. Once running people are well spaced out quickly.

Ah that’s good then. Our event hadn’t launched at that point so I was depending on publicly available information. Thanks for the clarification.

*as supplied by parkrun I mean. Clearly the sportscotland thing was in the public domain too but I didn’t see it. Maybe they were asked to keep it low key in case for example a 5000 person rave argued they were all participants not spectators. But won’t matter next week anyway.

Got something to say?
