Nepean River Parkrun

It's a 5km run - you against the clock!

Parkrun is a free, weekly 5km timed run for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities, held in locations across the world. For your timed result to be recorded, register once for free and bring a copy of your unique barcode with you when you turn up to parkrun.

Parkrun is not a race, but a relaxed friendly activity - run with your pram, run with your dog, run with friends, run to beat your last run! Parkrun is sweeping Australia, and the Parkrun community is very social - participants are all invited to catch up after the run for a coffee.

The course is 5000m (5K) long. The course is run on a mixture of concrete paths, bitumen paths and grass . Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.

Briefing is at 7.45am for 8am start. Occurs every Saturday rain hail or shine. 

Please, wherever possible walk, jog, cycle or use public transport when attending the event. If you do have to drive, please consider car-sharing to reduce our impact on both the environment and other park users. Parking may be limited so try to arrive early. Parking is available at the Tench Reserve boat ramp car park and along Tench Avenue. Please DO NOT park in the restaurant precinct car park behind Coffee Club.

Public toilets are available at Tench Reserve, 50m from the start/finish line.
