Parkrun is a free, weekly timed 5K year round on Saturdays. The Mt Penang chapter kicks off at 8am, with all levels of runner catered for. To participate you do need to register on the Parkrun website, print off your barcode and bring it when you run. If you don't have your barcode you won't get your time.
Course: This is a mixed course, featuring a mixture of road, grass and dirt road. The Mt Penang run starts off on the bridge of Mt Penang Gardens, running through the gardens out to the Event Park, up through the Parklands and past some amazing heritage buildings, out onto Parklands Road and up to the Central Coast Information Centre. This is an out and back course.
There are shared pathways and volunteers do try to handle traffic but it's best to be aware at all times of the environment around you.
The event is run entirely by volunteers.
