Christmas and New Year Day parkruns

Rockingham parkrun will not be formally staging either a Christmas Day or NYD 'bonus' parkrun.

This is in part due to the clean up from the NY Eve celebrations but also due to planning for a milestone event that will be affected by the addition of an extra run.

On the 22nd December, we will be having a Christmas themed tutu run though, so be prepared to get your jingle on!


2015 New Year’s Resolution Run

It's the New Year's Resolution Run......what does this mean??  It means that once again, Rockingham parkrun will be holding a BONUS RUN on New Year's Day, starting at 8am as usual.

It means that as well as holding a normal parkrun on Saturday 27th December and Saturday 3rd January (well, as normal as they ever are haha), there will also be a Rockingham parkrun on NYD2015 which counts as an officially counted run towards your run tally.

What???? 3 parkruns within eight days? The world's gone crazy.

Volunteers will be needed as usual, results will be processed as usual.  So stay off the sauce on the last day of 2014, and herald in 2015 minus the hangover with a New Year's Resolution at Rockingham parkrun.


Aussie Aussie Aussie Run


Get out your green and gold and don the Aussie flag.

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!

Show your Aussie pride!



Run as a boxing kangaroo, or just as a dedicated Down Under Wonder.

Boxing Kangaroo

It's Australia Day 2014, and the theme for Rockingham parkrun Event #39 on Saturday 25th January will be to show your true blue Aussie colours.

Let's see a tidal wave of Aussie pride rolling along the Rockingham coast.


Running of the Santas

What a sight it will be to behold!

Saturday 21st December will be the inaugural Rockingham parkrun Running of the Santas.  The dress theme for the morning is anything and everything Santa-ish, the more the merrier, followed by a Christmas Brekky.

The will certainly be more than enough HO HO HOs for everyone. So don't forget your barcHO-HO-HOde.....



New Year’s Resolution Run

Rockingham parkrun will hold a "BONUS" parkrun, to herald in 2014.

The New Year's Resolution Run will be held on WEDNESDAY 1st January 2014, (I know...a Wednesday, weird huh?) same time, same place, same need for volunteers...OK maybe we could get away with a few less!!!

So chase away the hangover and cobwebs, and get ready to welcome in a brand-spanking-new year at Rockingham parkrun.  Bring the family, the picnic rug and the budgie smugglers, actually maybe not the budgie smuuglers, but definitely bring the sunscreen, cos it's the only WA parkrun at the beach....what better spot to make a day of it?


Launch Event is nearly here!

The countdown is on! Only 5 more sleeps to go, before the launch of parkrun in Rockingham WA.  We think it will prove to be as popular and as successful as it has been in other parts of the world, including Australia (there are now more than 20 parkrun events Down Under).

Warm up will be conducted by Mandy from Body Prep at 7:45am, with the run starting at 8am.  See you down at Churchill Park (Rockingham foreshore) for 5 k's of fun!

Don't forget, bring some money for a sociable post-run coffee with your fellow parkrunners from one of several cafes in the area, in the beautiful park by the beach.
