Hearing impaired and deaf athletes

To connect with deaf and hard of hearing parkrunners, join the parkrun in Australia for the Deaf and hard of hearing facebook group.

Athletes of all abilities are very welcome at parkrun – hearing impaired or not.

Mid-week (unofficial) social runs

If you’re keen to fit an extra social run or two into your weekly schedule, check out the unofficial New Farm outta-the-park runners facebook page.

A few parkrun regulars gather on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings for social runs, and the details are posted there. PM the group for more details.

Defibrillator

Please take some time to watch this video, as we’d like everyone to know where our defibrillator is kept and the basics of its use.

If you’d like more detailed information, check out this longer video or read the full users’ manual. You should also remind yourself of CPR.

The defib is stored in the plastic gear box between parkruns, and moved to the finish line for easy access once the run has started each week. It will stay there until the tail walker crosses the line.
