New Year Double

Don't forget, we have a New Year double with Rhodes again this year!

Commencing at 8:00 am at Parramatta, you can follow this up with a 9:30am run over at Rhodes.

This is the only day of the year where two runs will count.

Just remember, stay safe travelling between the two runs.

 

Happy New Year 2017

What better way to see in the new year than with a run - or two!

Yes, again this year you can run the double - Parramatta and Rhodes. Starting this time with Parramatta parkrun at 7:30am (note the earlier start), this should give you time to hop across the river to Rhodes to do it all again at 9:30am!

It's the only time of the year you can officially record two runs in one day, so come and join the fun.

Remember, please drive carefully between events, and respect our neighbours at this early hour.

 

Christmas is Coming

Once again, we will be having a special run on Christmas Day.

Commencing at the usual time of 8:00 am, come join us for a run before you go home and enjoy all that Christmas cheer!
