Christmas and New Year

Wynnum is not allowed to hold additional events on Christmas and New Year's day, but we will be holding our regular Saturday parkruns on every Saturday in December 2018 and January 2019. There will be other options of running at nearby parkruns on those special days so I am sure we will see some of you out there.
If you want to celebrate Christmas with us a few days early then come along to our special run on 22nd December 2018 and dress up in Tutu or Santa Suit if you wish and share some festive treats with us.

Wynnum parkrun cancelled on 11th November 2017

Wynnum parkrun will be cancelled on Saturday 11th November 2017. There is a Remembrance service taking place for the NASHOS at 7am at Darling Point. So out of respect for those attending the Remembrance service, and for the safety of both those attending the service and those taking part in parkrun, we are cancelling parkrun at Wynnum for next week only.

People wanting to go to a parkrun next Saturday morning can go to other nearby events like Minnippi, Wishart, Mansfield, Capalaba, Cleveland, Sirromet or Redland Bay. There are now 250 parkruns in Australia each week so we have plenty of choices.

Wynnum will be back on 18th November, which is the same day our newest neighbouring parkrun will start at Lota, so on 18th you will have even more local choice :)

See you soon, Alan & Roisin - EDs Wynnum parkrun


No additional parkruns on Christmas Day or New Years Day

There WILL be the usual Saturday parkruns over Christmas (ie 23rd/30th December 2017 and 6th January 2018) but there will NOT be any additional events on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Other local parkruns will be running on those days, please see here for more details Christmas Compendium
