Emerald Parkrun Goes Green

On your marks, get set, GO!

Whilst staying in Emerald, join in on our local running event at the beautiful Botanic Gardens! Emeralds Parkrun is held every week and is less than a 5 minute drive from the Emerald Explorers Inn. Every Saturday morning, this 5km run is held at 7am free of charge. All it requires is one online registration before your first initial run and you’re good to go. To ensure you receive a run time at the completion of your run, don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode. You will receive this after registering.

Emerald Parkrun Event

This event is for individuals of all speeds, ages and fitness levels. The parkrun is an activity that is as competitive as you make it or want it to be. It can be an opportunity to be a part of your training and to track improvement. It can also be as a casual social ritual every Saturday to catch up with friends and support healthy physical activity.

Emerald Parkrun Goal

Runners are welcome to run with the goal of achieving a personal time or for the enjoyment of getting outside. You can join maybe even with a group of friends leisurely running alongside you. If running for the sake of running isn’t enough motivation for you, all participants grab a coffee from the local coffee shop afterwards so come along for your morning grande cappuccino!
