well that’s a great start to the week... after the successful launch of Mount Helena parkrun on Saturday, parkrun Australia have confirmed the name and launch date for a new event in Baldivis.

Hope to see some of you at Tamworth Wetlands parkrun in Aug 11th!

Don’t forget your barcode 😊

Awesome documentary - somehow it manages to make you simultaneously think “what the?” and “yup, I get it!”

Personally I’d love to be capable of doing even 1 lap in the allotted time. 5 laps with all the Barkley-isms? 😳😳😳

Getting excited about this now. Only 2 more sleeps and Mount Helena parkrun is live, free and active!

And in other news today... the City of Rockingham issued a permit, allowing parkrun to happen at the Tamworth Wetlands reserve in Baldivis. Just 2km from my house, and launching August 11th as part of Medibank’s Free+Active initiative. So I’ll be putting the Event Director hat back on, and once again have a beautiful parkrun course running distance from home 😊😊😊

Mount Helena parkrun
The Medibank Free + Active program is launching one of 40 new parkruns in our local area this weekend!
Come down for a run or walk on Saturday and celebrate the launch! #freeandactive #loveparkrun

Was awesome to see some familiar faces at the first trial run. The rain held off, the event team got a bit of experience and confidence under their belt, and we got a chance to see how the course would work under #parkrunday conditions. A small adjustment is needed to the start and finish arrangements, which we will try out at trial #2 this coming Sunday. Launch date is June 23rd - just around the corner! ...

there’s a big 5th anniversary celebration happening today - yes, Canning River parkrun turns 5! I may not get to run there much any more, and it’s a bit further to run to than it used to be... but Kian and I will be there this morning, catching up with so many friends and running buddies. #excited #loveparkrun #parkrunday #free #timed #5k ...

Thankyou to all volunteers everywhere, especially parkrun volunteers, and particularly those at Champion Lakes, Shelley, Claisebrook Cove, Mount Helena and Canning River 😊To celebrate the start of National Volunteers Week we wanted to acknowledge all of our parkrun volunteers.
Thanks for everything you do to make it possible for everyone to enjoy parkrunday EVERY Saturday and now Sunday (have you heard about junior parkrun Australia)

Thanks 💜
