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.


Defib Demo at CRp 15th Jun 2019

Defib Demo

If you've ever wondered how our mobile defibrillator operates or thought it would be good to familiarise yourself in advance, here's your chance. Robert Meacham has kindly offered to run a series of instructional demonstrations to dispel the myths and fears surrounding AED's. They will begin near the finish line of our June 15th parkrun event for anyone willing to observe and will be repeated as necessary to ensure everyone has an opportunity to be involved.
While Canning River parkrun is lucky enough to have a mobile defib, others do not. Please consider visiting this link and donating to support new or less fortunate parkrun locations.


5th Anniversary Pyjama Event and June Pacer Day

We are FIVE on June 2nd and to give you more time on a Saturday morning we thought we'd wear our PYJAMAS! Don your best flannels and fluffiest dressing gown, bring some tasty treats (please bring tasty treats!!) and come on down to help high-5 an amazing 5 years for our wonderful community.

It is also pacer day at Canning River, the day where some of our parkrun family pop on a bright orange vest and encourage and support other participants to achieve personal best (PB) times by trying to run as close to the time printed on their vest as possible. Such a rewarding thing do to, so let us know if you'd like to wear a pacer vest over your PJs and we'll set it aside for you.

See our Facebook event for details, we can't wait to see you there!


May Pacer Day at CRp

May 5th is pacer day at Canning River parkrun, providing you with an opportunity to test your legs and possibly give that PB Bell a ringing! As always, we are on the lookout for beautiful parkrunners to wear one our lovely, bright vests, so please let us know if you are keen and we'll keep it aside for you. See our Facebook page for event details.


Festive season parkruns

If you fancy a parkrun on Christmas Day or New Years Day we can provide!

On Christmas Day you can parkrun at Claisebrook Cove (Facebook event details), usual time of 8am.

On New Years Day you can parkrun at Canning River (Facebook event details) or you can head south to Rockingham parkrun (Facebook event details), again, both usual time of 8am.

Yes! These are official parkruns, so they will count towards your 50, 100 and 250 tshirts and the end of year points tables.

No! Each parkrun will operate these bonus runs a bit differently but definitely at Canning River parkrun we will not have the full complement of volunteers. Some parkruns will run without marshals and the first finisher may be required to operate the barcode scanner.

Feel free to email any questions you have direct to your chosen parkrun or post them on the Facebook event pages.

Freedom Run at Rockingham!

There is a twilight freedom run happening at Rockingham on December 30th at 6pm. We suggest running in your swimsuit and then dashing straight into the sea at the end of the run.


Sunny and joyous – August 24th 2013

On an absolutely gorgeous winter Saturday at Canning River Regional Park the 12th Canning River parkrun was run with 81 runners attending.

In the men's placings, Grant Langford (WA Marathon Club) came in as first finisher in 19:07, with Peter Conroy in 19:39 and Paul Odam (WA Marathon Club) third finisher in 20:00.

In the women's placings Clare Jennings was first female finisher in 21:21, Tracey Horton (WA Marathon Club) was second in 22:34 and Yasuko Osada was third in 25:48.

It was a new PB for both Conroy and Jennings, and notable PB mentions should go to Phillip Rose who knocked 34 seconds off his PB clocking in at 21:29, Laura and Anton Kuhar who came in in 43:22 and 43:21 respectively, both taking over 4 minutes from their previous times, and Morgane and Armelle Davies, who ran 31:15 and 31:16 respectively and both took 1 minute 26 seconds off their previous times.

We had 10 runners in the JW14 category, parkrunning after a sleepover birthday party, and making the largest group of JW14s that Canning River parkrun has ever hosted. It was the first ever parkrun for all of them, and we hope to see them back again very soon.

A large number of the Canning River parkrun family are participating in the City to Surf tomorrow, in distances as varied as the 4km walk, run or wheelchair through to the marathon. We wish all of you a great day.

Just a reminder to all parkrunners that next week we will be hosting a Begone Winter! BBQ after parkrun. Bring your sausages and buns and enjoy waving goodbye to the last vestiges of winter.

Canning River parkrun is a free, timed 5km run held every Saturday morning at 8am in the Canning River Regional Park. The start finish area is accessible from Kent Street in Wilson, near the Canning River Cafe. parkrun Australia is sponsored by Suncorp Bank, Stockland and adidas. Canning River parkrun is also sponsored by the City of Canning.
