Live Better with parkrun.

It's easy to think you're not a runner. You don't have long legs, the lungs of a blue whale or the resting heart rate of a gladiator. You've got no interest in stride length or split times or pre-emptively putting plasters over your nips to avoid chafing.

Well, to those people who don't like running, we've got the run for you. Medibank presents parkrun. Walk, jog, run or volunteer every Saturday at a park near you. 


What is parkrun?

All around the world, parkrun brings local communities together for a free weekly run, walk or jog. It’s lively, fun and family-friendly, and there are over 450 locations around Australia. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re attending to complete the course or participate as a volunteer on the day. There are no winners – just your own personal best.

How to participate

There are over 450 events around the country to choose from. You can find your nearest parkrun here.

If it’s your first time attending parkrun, you’ll need to register (it’s free!). Visit parkrun to sign up.
