Newy parkrun - Weekly Free 5km Timed Run

What is Newy parkrun?

It is a 5km run - it's you against the clock.

When is it?

Every Saturday at 8:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place at area surrounding Throsby Creek in Newcastle, NSW, starting in the large grassed area (shared by an off-leash zone), on the corner of Elizabeth and Young Streets, Carrington. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time

How fast do I have to be?

We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Newy parkrun needs you!

It is entirely organised by volunteers - email to help.

We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Café Inu, which can be found at 43 Denison Street, Carrington, about 500m from the start/finish area, opposite Connolly Park - please come and join us!
