1st Birthday Party

We're turning one on the 20th June 2015 and you're all invited!

Join us for our first birthday, have a run, and join in the after party - BYO drinks, BBQ's are available. :)

There will be presentations after the tail runner crosses the line, and of course, there will be cake!

Theme is PYJAMA PARTY! You don't even have to get dressed when you get out of bed (unless you sleep in your birthday suit!). Wear your favourite pj's, nightie or onesie and have some fun. :)

Please remember to register online first, and bring your personal barcode with you.

 

Anzac Day – Saturday 25th April 2015

Carine Glades parkrun, along with all other parkruns in Australia, will be cancelled on ANZAC Day 2015. As Tim Oberg announced in the newsletter:

"After much consideration we've decided that this year we're not going to parkrun on Anzac Day, April 25. We appreciate that some of you may be disappointed with this decision however it has been made with the best intention to: 1. Avoid any potential logistical clashes with Dawn Services; and 2. Pay our respects to what is sure to be a much larger than usual national commemorative occasion. Normal service will of course resume the following Saturday, May 2."

 

Saturday 14 March 2015

We've been watching the weather forecasts all day, and have come to the conclusion that we're likely to get wet at parkrun tomorrow! But yes, we will be running, unless the weather deteriorates overnight to the point where we deem it unsafe to continue, in which case we will post here as early as possible in the morning. You might like to wear your older shoes, bring a towel & a dry shirt to put on after you finish your run! See you in the morning!
