Course Change from 5th January to 23rd March 2019 due to path closure

We have been advised that the path around the cove will be closed for significant works until at least 23rd March. This has necessitated the use of an alternative course which starts and finishes at Mardalup Park (current start position).  This will be the new meeting spot for volunteers and participants, and also where we will barcode scan at the end.

The alternative course runs 400m further into Bardon Park and turns around at a point level with the Maylands Boat Clubhouse. Please note that parkrun HQ rules require any alternate course to be at least 50m long that the normal course, which ensures PBs on the normal course are protected.

Thanks for your patience parkrunners!

The Event Team


Claisebrook Cove will not be putting on extra events on Christmas Day or New Years Day 2018/19. Please take the opportunity to enjoy neighbouring events!


Personal Belongings at Claisebrook Cove parkrun

There was an unfortunate incident where a bag left by a parkrunner at the start area in Mardalup Park went missing. Whilst we hope that an honest person may have handed it in to the police, please can parkrunners remember that you bring any personal belongings to parkrun at your own risk.

As we have a start and finish area in separate locations, you are responsible for ensuring your belongings are safe. Whilst we monitor any suspicious activity, please remember the volunteers and Event Team are there to ensure a safe event, not to operate a cloakroom.


Christmas and New Year 2017/18

Claisebrook Cove parkrun will be holding an event at 8am on Christmas Day ! There will also be a freedom run led by Event Director Suzanne at 6.45am before set up - so if you want to volunteer, you still get a 5km run (although it will not count to your run totals you can still record it via "My Profile" as a freedom run).

We are not holding an event on New Years Day this year - but options are available for nearby events: Aveley, Lake Joondalup, Carine, Calleya, Pioneer, Champion Lakes, Canning River, Shelley, Kalgoorlie, Geographe Bay. Please check the relevant events website for start times as these can vary.

If you are travelling interstate - check out if a local parkrun is having an event on Christmas Day or New Years day via the Christmas Compendium on

Merry Christmas parkrunners from the Event Team - Suzanne, Paul, Dutch, Gary and Pete




UPDATE – Construction works on the course 28th November

We are pleased to announce that we can resume our normal course for tomorrow's event - 29th October. The start and finish will be in the usual places, and volunteers will meet in Victoria Park as normal.

Works are continuing along the path - but we will be monitoring the progress in conjunction with our contacts at the Council. Please watch this space and the facebook page for updates over the coming weeks.

Any changes will be explained in the weekly briefing at the start line - so we would be grateful if you can take a few minutes to listen carefully because our run briefings are aimed at making sure all our parkrunners are safe during the event.
