Parkrun On Saturday

This week 85 people ran, jogged and walked the 5km waterfront course, of whom 16 were first timers and 18 recorded new Personal Bests.

The event was made possible thanks to RD Dan and his wonderful team of 15 volunteers: Nick, Kara, Megan, Wade, Susanne, Ashley, Ken, Jarrod, Lynne, Dennis, Joanne, Anne, Justin and Chris R.

Every Saturday Airlie Beach parkrun meets at 6:50am for a briefing at area D, Coral Sea Marina (adjacent to the top carpark).

Parking is free in the lowest carpark till 9:30am if a parkrun barcode is placed on the dashboard. Post parkrun coffee and chat is held at My Rainbow Bakery & Cafe.

You can walk or run the 5k course (pushing a pram or with one dog on a short lead if you want to!), lend a helping hand as a volunteer in a wide range of super-easy roles, or simply spectate and socialise on the sidelines.
