It's exciting to know that Parkruns are popping up everywhere. What with the recent Inaugural Brimbank Park Parkrun (upcoming on the 19th) and now the Inaugural Newport Lakes Parkrun Launch at Newport Lakes Reserve, Lakes Drive, Newport on Saturday 26 August 2017, with an 8am start! Best of all, it's free; free to get healthy, free to meet and make new friends, and free to feel good about doing something good for yourself, because you're worth it!
It doesn't end there as Parkrun is a weekly 5km running freebie event that takes place every Saturday, not just here, but at hundreds of locations across Australia. Please note, while Parkrun is a free event, attendees must register online to take part. You only ever register with Parkrun once. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode. For more information and other details, check the website.
If you're a Newport local; great! You won't have to travel far. If you're in the surrounding nearby suburbs, it's a good chance to try it out. Brought to you by Medibank, this is part of its Free Active Initiative, making free, social activities more accessible to Aussies.
