The Park Runs in Harwich and Clacton ceased to take place during the pandemic in line with Government guidance.
ECC (Dr Mike Gogarty) and Tom Williams, Park Run made contact with the authority on 11 June 2021 to confirm a number of Park Runs across Greater Essex had permission to re-start. This included the Park Runs at Clacton and Harwich.
The two Park Runs in Tendring support the Council's strategic health priorities.


The Portfolio Holder for Partnerships and the AD (Partnerships) working with Public Health Officers agreed to support the re-opening of the Park Runs in Tendring, following the Government's Covid Road Map.
Colleagues in Public Realm have also been informed as the Park Runs take place on TDC land.
This is an ECC Public Health initiative with the national Park Run organisation, supported by Tendring District Council.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - To not allow the Park Runs to re-start
Option 2 - To allow the Park Runs to re-start in accordance with the Government Covid Road Map
