TAUNTON'S Parkrun has been cancelled for the second week in a row following a spate of bad weather.

After Storms Ciara and Dennis, the meadow has been left waterlogged and muddy, making for difficult running conditions.

But that's not the only reason, as the organisers are considering the impacts of 300+ runners making their way through the damp fields, which could make matters worse.

"We have made the difficult decision to cancel tomorrow’s parkrun," organisers said in a Facebook post.

"The course is potentially runnable and we have definitely run in worse conditions. However we share the park and if we did go ahead as normal we would wreck the Meadow for other users.

"Some areas are still flooded and the finish area is ankle deep in water. On other parts of the course people have walked, run, cycled on the verges and they are very boggy.

"Having potentially 300+ runners going around two laps, we would destroy the paths and the Meadow would take even longer to recover

"We don’t have exclusive rights on the Meadow and we do not want to alienate other users especially the volunteer groups who would hard to make it such a great place to run.

"We hope you understand our reasoning.

"Perhaps a bit of parkrun tourism for some of you.

"Hope to see you all again.

"Dave, Jamie and the core team."
