Cancellation – Saturday 2 July 2016

New Farm parkrun will be cancelled on Saturday 2 July 2016 due to the Teneriffe Festival which runs 10am – 9pm on that day.

The event organisers will be setting up from Friday evening with road and path closures in the area. For more information, see the Teneriffe Festival web page.

Why not become a parkrun tourist for the week? See the list of nearby parkrun events on our homepage (bottom right of page) or check out the full events listing for every parkrun location in Australia.

If you are heading to the Gold Coast Airport Marathon that weekend, don’t forget that Main Beach parkrun is cancelled too, due to road closures for the marathon events, but there's plenty of other parkrun locations to loosen your legs.

Or why not consider entering the GCAM  5.7km or 10km events which are run on Saturday instead?

Team parkrun at Twilight Running Festival

Info for parkrun team members in the Twilight Running Festival on Sunday 18/03/2012


Hi Guys,

It is only 2 more sleeps to go until the Twilight Running Festival. I hope
your training has gone as well as you had hoped.

I just wanted to update you guys on what will be happening on the day. We
will have a marquee for Team parkrun that will be situated on the inside
of the athletics track at UQ. It is black and white and has parkrun
splashed all over it so you can't miss it. Please bring a fold out chair
so you have something to sit on. You will be able to leave bags and
belongings at this marquee as we are planning to have someone manning it
the whole time.

Karen McLeod is our team captain and has generously offered to collect the
race packs for the team. If you wish to collect your own race pack on
Saturday, then you can do so on Saturday at intraining. If you don't get
down on Saturday, Karen will collect your race pack and you can collect it
from our parkrun marquee on Sunday. In order to make life easier for
Karen, can you please send her an email indicating whether you would like
her to pick up your race pack or not. Her email address is

The race times are:

10km - 4pm
Half Marathon - 5:30pm
3km - 5:50pm

If you can, please stick around after your race and help cheer the rest of
our team home.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me on

I look forward to seeing you there on Sunday (and some of you tomorrow
for parkrun too).

parkrun is on this weekend, despite the wet weather

Looks like a fair chance it will rain on Saturday morning. Even so, we will be there regardless. Rain, hail or shine...well, rain or shine anyway. The markets are on too this Saturday so allow plenty of time to get to the starting point ready for a 7am start.
