Just a quick note to let you know that we won't be staging an additional event on Christmas Day however we will be holding a Santa Run on Saturday 21st December! Make sure you are wearing a Santa Suit or Christmas outfit for this special run. All donations collected on the day will go to local charities to help make Christmas brighter for disadvantaged children. The Reject Shop is selling summer friendly Santa Suits if you are looking for one for the run. This will be our last run for the year!
Thank you to everyone who came along and got involved. We had approximately 70 people present on the day, our BIGGEST crowd yet! We also raised funds for the Gladstone Men's Shed who cooked our delicious sausage sizzle on the day, thanks to Andrew at Brumby's Kin Kora and Wade at Woolworths for donated items towards the BBQ. Maria from Happy Faces Facepainting was our talented face painter transforming kids and Dad's alike into super heroes!
Our first themed day was such a success that we hope to hold many more such as a Colour Run for Pink Ribbon Day, Zombie Run for Halloween and Santa Run for Christmas! If anyone has any ideas or would like to volunteer their products/services for these days please let me know on 4978 1944.
Bring your Dad along for a leisurely walk, jog or run along our gorgeous waterfront track at our parkrun event at 7am sharp on Saturday 31st August to celebrate the Father's Day weekend. We will be providing a free BBQ in the Lions Park afterwards courtesy of Stockand Gladstone and the Gladstone Mens Shed.
FREE gifts for every Dad participating in parkrun on the day!
Just a quick shout out to all our GC Marathon participants, congratulations and I am sure you all did magnificently. However we did miss you last week and looking forward to the Gladstone parkrun community to be back together again! See you at 7am Saturday morning.
Our very first parkrun event is this Saturday morning at 7am in the Lions Park.
Make sure you are registered and bring along your barcode so that we can track your time and you can earn points for attendance!
All runners will receive a goodie bag packed full of special offers and gifts. We look forward to seeing you there.
