No Christmas or New Years event this year

Unfortunately, this year South Bank parkrun will not be holding an event on Christmas day.

We're a bit of a victim of our own success. Last years Christmas day holds the record for biggest parkrun event in Australia, and if we get a similar amount of people this year, it may mean we would be in breach of COVID-19 restrictions.

The on-going works in the parklands area also make it difficult to ensure that everyone can socially distance successully.

So we've taken the difficult step of announcing that we will not be holding an event this year at South Bank. We absolutely encourage you to check out some of the other local events.

We will still be holding our normal Saturday events - and really look forward to seeing you there




Special Event: Christmas Day parkrun

South Bank parkrun is pleased to announce that we will be staging a special, one off parkrun on Christmas Day at 7am and we would like to invite any interested parkrunners in the Brisbane area and their family and friends to attend if they wish to.

Please note that this will be an official parkrun event and as such will count towards your run count to qualify for 10, 50 and 100 etc club membership.

A Facebook event has been created so that we can have an idea how many will be attending. Please accept this invitation, and forward it on to whoever you like, as this will help us work out how many volunteers we will need. On that subject anyone who would like to volunteer on the day please let us know.

As everyone will no doubt be anxious to get home to their presents, Christmas pudding etc the event will be held as quickly as possible so people can get away.

A few things about South Bank parkrun for those who haven't been before and especially if you are concerned by the prospect of it being a hot day . . .

1. We believe that our course is the only one in the world which has over 1k of the course under cover.
2. The pool at South Bank is right next to the finish area and is perfect for a cool down swim afterwards
3. Parking at the underground carpark at South Bank is only $2 provided you arrive after 5am and leave by 9am.

Hope to see you there.
