Parkrun: Free Exercise For All

by Sally Foster (follow)
The perfect way to start your weekend

Are you looking to get fit, get outdoors and be part of the community? Parkrun is the perfect way to get motivated in a group and get fit outdoors in our beautiful city.

Parkruns are free, weekly, community events all around Brisbane.

Saturday morning events are 5km, and take place in parks and open spaces. On Sunday mornings, there are 2km Junior Parkruns for children aged 4 to 14 years.

Parkrun is a positive, welcoming and inclusive experience where there is no time limit and no one finishes last. Everyone is welcome to come along, whether you walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate. You don't need to be super fit to participate! Plenty of families go along with babies and kids in prams. Just stick to the left and enjoy.

You can find a Parkrun near you, I love the one at Sandgate along foreshore for the views. You can check out this interactive map here to find one local to you.

If you have a budding athlete in your family too, the junior run at Bellevue state school could be perfect.

Remember, Parkrun is free! So you can get some exercise each week for nothing, but still get your times online as you need to register. You only need to register once. It is completely run by volunteers too so remember to smile and be nice!
