Coober Pedy Parkrun

Updated: May 18, 2023

Parkrun is for people who want to move!

It's a phenomenon that's held right around the world.

It's a free, timed 5km event that's all about getting people outside with others for a bit of exercise. You don't have to be a fast runner. In fact, in recent years average parkrun times have got slower because more people are coming out and giving it a go…and then they're getting hooked!

Parkrun caters for the fast and slow, runners or walkers, the young, the old, and everyone in between. Parents can push a pram, kids can toddle and dogs are welcome too.

It's a social event for people who enjoy getting outside with others, chatting, and catching up afterward for a coffee.

It also generates tourism, with people from all around the world planning their holidays to take in as many Parkruns as possible. Parkrun tourism even has a Facebook page!

We also need volunteers to manage the event - at least 10 people who are motivated to see it succeed.

Can you commit to volunteering for a parkrun on Saturday mornings for around 1.5 hrs? Winter start time is 8am – and 7am during the Summer.
