Park run is an international phenomena that is everywhere in Brisbane. Participants from all ages meet at a location (in this case Southbank) to run/ walk 5kms. Through a barcode system, participants can race against themselves and the atmosphere is friendly and encouraging. A team of volunteers, organises, cheers, directs and even photographs (thats right, you get photos of your sweaty, yet hard-working self!). Additionally, due to the popularity - the online system is very organised and provides a great way for you to see your progress. The course itself is beside the river and highly beautiful, and the 5km will go so quickly! Hills are present but minor, and any one with even a low fitness level can do it! Suitable for everyone; prams, pets, solo acts and teams unite as one to provide the atmosphere that is continued worldwide.
