Path closure – Temporary change of course 22nd October

We have been advised by City of Perth that the path closure on part of our course is likely to continue until mid-December. Therefore, it has become necessary to change our course on a temporary basis.

To keep things simple and remain within the terms of our agreement with the council, we will be starting and finishing in Mardalup Park and following a simple out and back, with our usual turnaround point being moved to ensure we maintain the 5km length.

Therefore, if you usually arrive at Victoria Park on Royal Street pre-race, please make you way over to the start area where runners and volunteers alike will assemble over the next few weeks. Please allow enough time if you need to use the toilet facilities in Victoria Park.

Please be assured we will return to our normal beautiful course as soon as we can.

It's just a slightly longer walk/warm-down to get your post-run coffee....

 

Christmas Day 2016 & New Year’s Day 2017

There will be no parkrun at Claisebrook Cove on either Christmas Day or New Years Day over the festive season this year. However, our usual Saturday events will take place on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.

At the current time, in WA, we are aware that Canning River, Kalgoorlie-Boulder and Geographe Bay will be hosting additional events on New Year's Day, and Kalgoorlie has also decided to host a parkrun on Christmas Day. Please see the relevant event pages for details of the location - www.parkrun.com.au/events. Please be aware that the start times on these holidays can vary from the usual 8am start - so please check before travelling.

Other WA events will decide in the coming weeks whether they will be holding additional parkruns - so watch this space!

Run Report 09/06/2016

Good morning all!

There is some good news and also some not so good news. I will start off with the good news.

Well done to all of you runners who braved the cold this morning and also special thanks to the wonderful volunteers *insert clap, clap* who helped out to make this all happen.

Now for the not so good news, our stop watch has decided it was too cold this morning and went back to bed. Our trusty machine has done us proud and it may go to a better place now. In saying that, you will all get a default time of 59:59 but tally of runs will still be accounted for.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead. Stay safe and enjoy a hot coffee/chocolate/tea indoors as you all deserve it after a massive run this morning.

Thanks Anthony
