The time has come to move back to the Hub…

Hullo parkrun family.

We are pleased to announce that we are changing the course at Kingston Park parkrun.

No longer will we meet at the lower oval, which has morphed into a swamp in recent times.

We will meet you under cover at the Hub, where you'll receive your briefing before setting off from the new start/finish line adjacent to the playground.

We have reconfigured the course and trialled it so we know what to expect and now it is your turn to experience the change.

Here is a link to the course description: https://www.parkrun.com.au/kingstonpark/course/

See you soon!

 

A challenge we can get behind!

One of our own, Meriem Daoui has taken on an enormous challenge to raise funds for a Tasmanian foundation, Tim Blair Run For Kids.

We are pleased and proud to support Meriem in her efforts by sharing the news of her challenge with you, and encouraging you to get behind her fundraising efforts.

Attend Kingston Park parkrun on Saturday 22nd May 2021 @ 8.45am to hear Meriem tell you why she is running an elevation of 8890m, the equivalent of Mt Everest.

You can then walk or run with us on that day, wear yellow to raise awareness and consider making a donation to assist with the fundraising - every bit helps!

Parking arrangements for Saturday 27th March 2021

Hullo parkrun family!

The Kingborough Council are thrilled to announce that the official opening of the new playground area is happening this weekend.

For us, this means that car parking may be challenging as official events at the Hub begin at 10am.

It has been suggested that parkrun participants utilise the council carparks at 15 Hutchins Street and 98 Beach Road, or us the church carpark @ 127 Beach Road (permission has been given).

Please see the map provided and do what you can to help alleviate parking issues in Goshawk Way.

Thank you for your assistance.

A new procedure for park runners and walkers

Check in TAS - How to Download App

 

Hullo parkrun family!

We have a new procedure to follow at parkrun, starting this Saturday 9th January, 2021.

The state government require you to log your attendance at Kingston park parkrun on your smartphone, once you download and install their Check-In Tas app.
You can find it in the App Store/Google Play. You are then required to sign in on it. This enables you to scan our QR code (or that of any business/other parkrun you attend) when you turn up ready to participate each week. If you cannot see our QR code displayed, ask someone in an orange vest.

We know you'll have questions so ask away in the comments below. This move is an important one within our Covid-19 operational framework regarding contract tracing, so thank you for your co-operation.

After a stellar return under the guidance of Run Director Nika, we had 127 participants at our return event on Saturday 24th October.

As you may know, we now meet on the lower oval off Goshawk Way. Some of the paths in are a bit rough and the grass is growing rapidly so won’t always be nice and short - we can thank Daniel Smee and his hand mower for taming the start/finish line and turnaround at John Street!

The council have scraped all the bark mulch covering off the lower soggy corner of Whitewater Creek track, adjacent to our oval. It may be more traversable in the near future.

We are grateful to both Daniel and Kingborough Council for helping us give you a safe and comfortable course.

The toilets at the Hub should now be accessible to us again so your comfort stops are nice and close.

A big shout out to the volunteers stepping up to help deliver your parkrun each week - please email kingstonpark@parkrun.com to help or to get your name and details on our email list so we can contact you directly.

Remember to socially distance and bring your barcode when we see you again this Saturday.

Welcome back!
