Parents, please remember our Under 11 rule which states all children aged 10 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times while parkrunning.

Also a reminder that scooters and bicycles are not permitted at parkrun, due to the safety risks to both children and parkrunners.

Visually impaired athletes and guides

To connect with the VI team join the Achilles Brisbane - athletes & guides connect facebook group. Each Wednesday, the call goes out to match VI athletes with guides for the following Saturday.

Guides, visually impaired athletes of all abilities and guide dogs are very welcome at parkrun, as are runners and walkers of all abilities – visually impaired or not.

Defibrillator

Please take some time to watch this video, as we’d like everyone to know where our defibrillator is kept and the basics of its use.

If you’d like more detailed information, check out this longer video or read the full users’ manual. You should also remind yourself of CPR.

The defib is stored in the plastic gear box between parkruns, and moved to the finish line for easy access once the run has started each week. It will stay there until the tail walker crosses the line.
