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?

For full details of all the events happening on. New Years Day, please check out the full list at


A Tribute to Graham.

Dear Canning River parkrunners,
It is with great sadness that we make this announcement.
Graham Upton’s family has contacted us with the sad news that Graham has passed away, suddenly on Christmas Day.
Along with his wife Wendy, Graham has been a regular part of our parkrun family for more than three years. Anyone who has met him would say that Graham always had a smile for friends and strangers alike and was a humble, selfless person; someone who never made a fuss. In April of this year, we were pleased to welcome Graham as a Run Director and he became an integral member of the Canning River Event Team. He loved serving the community and always put others first. We will miss Graham dearly.
Our thoughts are with Wendy and the family at this difficult time.
Graham was very passionate about his favourite soccer club, Chelsea, who play in royal blue and often joked about how his wearing the red 50 milestone parkrun shirt was the only time he would wear the colours of arch rival Manchester United.
Therefore, as a tribute to Graham, we would like to encourage everyone attending our parkrun on Saturday 5th January 2019 to either wear a shirt or something coloured Blue or, alternatively, wear the jersey for their favourite sports team.

Graham will be sorely missed, but not forgotten.

Canning River parkrun #280 22/9/2018

What a great day for a run or walk. This week 245 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 16 were first timers and 26 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 15 different clubs took part.

Some awesome milestones were achieved today with Wendy UPTON claiming a shy 100th and Brendan MCAULIFFE stating in bold and delicious cake 150! Congratulations to you both.

Peg's Lamination Services was well received with 51 taking up on his generous offer. Anyone who left a paper barcode last week and hasn't picked it up should see either Andrew Pengelly or the Run Director in the next few weeks.

The event was made possible by the flawless performance of 20 volunteers. Give yourselves a pat on the back Sabbia TILLI • Mark JOSS • Bob SCOTT • Cliff HOLDOM • Blake GLOSSOP • Rodney GLOSSOP • Nathan DE BRUYN • Helen WARD • Debra GAUNTLETT • Julie KING • Jared MORO • Jacqueline O'NEILL • Jason PEREIRA • Hudson PEREIRA • Angelina LEONG • Jonathan GAUNTLETT • Amy GAUNTLETT • Emi JONES • Jesse O'NEILL & Warren JONES


Even #271 – 21 July 2018

What did you all think of the new parking arrangement? The overall feedback has been extremely positive and, as such, we will continue the trial for the next few weeks. If you would be interested in helping out, then please comment below, as we would like to train some parking Marshals in August. Parking Marshals still get to run after completing their parking duties - however they start their run a few minutes late so chances of getting a PB on that day will be slim ;)

The weather gods were very kind to us this morning and the promised deluge was only a light sprinkle. Congratulations to Charlotte G who was celebrating her 50th run today and anyone else who was celebrating a sneaky milestone!

This week 205 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 9 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 18 AWESOME volunteers:

Andrew PENGELLY • Carolyn FAWCETT • Robert FAWCETT • Mark RALEIGH • Mark JOSS • Annette BRYANT • Mark KERR • Lisa IP • David ROSE • Carollyn PEARS • Linda NIBLOCK • Jason GIELINGH • William WILLIAMS • Sarah JAMES • Bronwyn MILKINS • Monika CAMERON • Kimberleigh KING • Tegan CRAKE

Results delay – 05/05/2018

Hi all, 280 awesome parkrunners have had their results processed however we understand there is a global back-end issue which will delay publishing of results, please bear with us and a run report will follow when available.

Unfortunately we did not have a volunteer photographer today so there wont be any photos .


Event number 259 28th April 2018

Canning River parkrun Event number 259 28th April 2018

This week 286 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 41 were first timers and 48 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.

Congrats to Andrew "Pegsy" Pengelly on run number 300. Only another 200 until the next milestone shirt. Also congrats to Aimee Ward for her 100th and for the sensational cake.

I'd also like to mention that we have a fantastic community, which was evident out on course today when one runner fell. Its great to hear that other runners stop to offer help, but as a result miss pb's or particular time targets. By giving up your own ambition to check another runner is okay is fantastic. If you come back next week enjoy a free run on us.

The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:

Kilee GILES • Mia GILES • Zali VAN AURICH • Izabella VAN AURICH • Jodie EBERIUS • David ROSE • Brandon JOHN • Jo JOHN • Gary NEINDORF • Owen DRUMMOND-HAY • Sarah JAMES • Katherine HICKS • Kimberleigh KING • Stuart MILLGATE • Zoe MILLGATE
