Check In Tas app now to be used at parkruns in Tasmania

All parkruns in Tasmania are now required by the Tasmanian Government Department of Community Sport & Recreation to use an event specific QR code in conjunction with the Check In Tas app.

This is to ensure an accurate record of participants and appropriate storage of contact details

The Check In Tas app is free to download. Information on the Check In Tas App is available from:

There will be multiple copies of our  Event QR code  clearly displayed in the start area from this weekend and we ask that you scan it using the Check In Tas app when arriving at parkrun. The app is easy to use, and you can add family members to the one scan.




New Year’s Day parkrun

George Town parkrun invites all regular and visiting parkrunners to join us on New Year’s Day, 2020 at our usual time of 9am at the Elizabeth St pier ( Pier Hotel) to welcome in the new year with a shuffle, jog, walk or run! We look forward to seeing everyone!!


New Year’s Day parkrun

George Town parkrun will be running a New Year’s Day event - everyone is welcome to come and walk, jog or run in the new year. Come and join us at the Elizabeth St Pier at 9am. Remember, NYD is the one day where you can record two parkrun events!!!



This week 28 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 6 were first timers. We had 3 people record a new Personal Best.
Thank you to the first timers and to our visitors, we hope you all enjoyed our course and we hope to see you again!!
As always, this event can not happen without volunteers, so a thank you goes to you too.


No extra parkruns – Christmas and New Year’s Day

George Town parkrun will not be organising extra parkruns on either Christmas Day or New Year's Day.

Some of you may be aware that some groups organise these special events, but the decision to do this is made individually by each organising committee. The concept was discussed recently by the George Town organising group and it was agreed that we will not hold the extra runs at George Town.

If you would like to participate in a parkrun on either of these days, check the websites of other parkruns nearby. (Launceston, Windsor Park, Devonport, Railton)

See you on Saturday 23rd and Saturday 30th December!
