Parkrun comes to the Wildflower Garden

Published on 8 May 2018

The NSW-based fun run will kick off in Ku-ring-gai this weekend along a 5km route at the Wildflower Garden.

Parkrun is suitable for all styles of runner and jogger, from the very experienced through to the absolute beginner. Best of all, it’s free!

It’s a weekly 5km fun run event organised by volunteers which now has almost 100 events all over NSW.

This weekend’s inaugural Ku-ring-gai parkrun will take place on Saturday 12 May from 8am at the Wildflower Garden, 420 Mona Vale Road St Ives.

Starting at the picnic area of the Garden, the route will take a 5 kilometre circular path through bushland before returning to the picnic area.

Organisers say the Ku-ring-gai parkrun has hilly sections and parts are not accessible to wheelchairs or strollers. Otherwise the run can be enjoyed by most participants.

Although the event is free, participants must register to take part before the race. Each participant is issued with a unique barcode that must be presented at the start of the race to take part.

Following the launch of parkrun this Sunday, the run will be on weekly at the same location and time on Saturdays.
