CRp SafeWA App QR Code

Safe WA app QR for CRp

The Western Australian Government has now mandated electronic check-in via the SafeWA app for any place where an event is held. As such, parkrun events are now required to print and display a unique QR code (attached), at various locations around the event. We have also added the QR code to our social media channels and this news article.

Walkers, runners and volunteers checking in via the app is fundamental for parkrun to continue operating in WA, therefore participants are strongly encouraged to check in before leaving home, in their car, at or after the event each week. Should participants have any problems scanning the QR Code or do not have a compatible device, we would suggest another participant or volunteer use their device and register their community member as a new entry by rescanning the QR Code.


CRp re-opening on All Hallows Eve.

We've got all our bats in a row, brushed the cobwebs from the equipment vault and have a cauldron full of mixed metaphors.
Saturday 31st October at CRp, there will be hordes of covid zombies emerging from the wood works as mushy brains forget names but friends will be met and relationships rekindled.
The roster is looking healthy but we are always on the prowl for more heroes, just like you.
In fact, we could consume up to 6 barcode scanners this week (COVID requirements, please familiarise yourself).
Insert evil maniacal laugh here.

October 24th – Event Cancellation

We were prepared to return with the introduction of Phase 5 but since it's delay we have been teased by the back and forth between parkrun HQ and WA Health as many of you may have noticed.
Now at what feels like the last minute we are advised to seek more approvals from landowners and tick some more check-boxes, something we were not prepared for.
So, disappointingly, we feel the best course of action is to cancel this week while we continue with the approval process and will be back when ALL parties involved are completely satisfied with the new covid safe arrangements to be put in place..
In the meantime we encourage our runners and walkers to get out, enjoy a run in the park and meet up with a small group of friends just as you would on any given parkrunday. We also strongly discourage parkrun tourism to the few events that may be able to run as this would put undue pressure on an already stressed and possibly crowded location, something we have done so well to avoid over the last 7 months.
Please be patient and remember the event team here at CRp have your health and well-being foremost in our minds.


Dec 21st pre-Christmas event

Come join our pre-Christmas festive frivolities with Santa's little helpers at Canning River parkrun this Saturday.
We will be holding a special Christmas day event this year but many of us will unfortunately be "committed" by then so let's not miss a chance to celebrate with our local parkrun family and friends.
The 21st will be a day to dress up, share in some treats and enjoy our favourite 5k timed run or walk with familiar faces.

As a special one time only surprise (Due to a bridge closure) we will be re-visiting our alternate out and back course commonly referred to as Narnia. Please note we will also be needing a few extra course marshals and maybe a photographer to get things rolling.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas,
Your Event Team.


New Years Day parkrun

We are going to be starting the year 2020 off with a bonus parkrun starting at 8:00. As usual you can run or walk the 5k and by starting earlier, everyone should have the chance to visit another event and complete a New Years Day double.

If that isn’t a good reason for an early night, then what is?
