The organisers of the Parkrun at Little Stoke park in South Gloucestershire say they're investigating a legal challenge against the decision to charge them.
In a statement on their website, Tom Williams, chief operating officer for Parkrun, said: “As we look towards opening our 1,000th location later this year it is clear that a per-event or per-runner charge simply would not be sustainable and would threaten our free-to-participate ethos.
"By agreeing to a charge in relation to use of the land at Little Stoke Park we would be establishing a precedent that would put the future of parkrun at risk.”
