The Embracing 2018 Legacy Program has partnered with parkrun to bring 20 new sites to Australia.
The new parkrun locations will be rolled out in the lead-up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018). Another seven locations have been confirmed for early 2018.
New parkrun locations will launch at:
- Gardiners Creek, VIC on 20 January, 2018
- Zillmere, QLD on 27 January, 2018
- Bright, VIC on 27 January, 2018
- Greenway, NSW on 3 February, 2018
- Burdekin, QLD in February, 2018
- Forest Lake, QLD in Febraury 2018
The five kilometre parkruns are free and open to everyone, taking place in parkland surroundings, with half of the new sites pram and wheelchair accessible. You will also have your run times, giving you the opportunity to do your personal best every week!
People of all ages, running ability and fitness levels are encouraged to take part – from casual joggers and juniors, to athletes aiming to compete in GC2018.
The Embracing 2018 Legacy Program for GC2018 will build active, engaged and inclusive communities by motivating people to move more, value their health, and be active for life.
