Death probe leads to cancellation of Durham park run
THE Durham park run has been cancelled tomorrow (Saturday) following the investigation into the mysterious death of a North-East solicitor.
The body of Peter Maine, a 56-year-old father-of-two, was found on a path near Maiden Castle sports ground, Durham, at 8am on Sunday.
He was found with multiple stab wounds and an investigation is ongoing.
As a consequence organisers of the run, which goes past the scene and attracts hundreds of runners, have had to call it off.
It has been confirmed that the police will definitely still be continuing their investigation on the crime scene at Maiden Castle on Saturday, which unfortunately blocks the Durham park run course, leaving us with no possible alternate route to use, said Adam Walker Durham park run Core Team Member.
So I am sorry to confirm that Durham parkrun will definitely be cancelled this Saturday.
Please try nearby parkruns such as Riverside, Blackhill, Sedgefield, Hackworth, Darlington, Sunderland, Newcastle, Gateshead and many more.
