Of all of the Park Runs I have tried so far I would say that New Farm is my favourite. Me, Naomi and the Aussie have visited a few times so far and I plan to go back again.
The course is lovely, it runs along the river which is one of my favourite places to visit in the city, and back again.
2. Accessibility / Manoeuvrability
The course has nice wide paths so it is easy to go past the other participants and people also enjoying the river on foot/scooter/bikes. Another plus is that it is mainly flat and there are markets nearby which you can enjoy after your run.
The volunteers are lovely, very helpful and informative. They are also very encouraging as you go past.
So far I have liked the photos which they publish after the event. They usually take them by the finish line when I try and get that last minute burst of energy to run!
The best thing about Park Run is the ambience. Everyone is very supportive and positive and it really doesn’t matter if you run it in under 20 minutes or walk it in an hour. The main thing is that you are there giving it a go and getting better every week.
