Feel the rush of beating your personal best, with social 5 km runs or walks in hundreds of parks around Australia.

All around the world, parkrun brings local communities together for a weekly 5 km run or walk. It’s lively, fun and family-friendly, and there are over 350 locations around Australia. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a beginner or a pro. There are no winners – just your own personal best.

Medibank has been a major partner of parkrun since 2016. Last year, we helped parkrun roll out 40 new locations across Australia.

In 2019, we’re thrilled to announce a new three-year commitment as parkrun’s National Health and Wellbeing Partner. Our goal is to help connect parkrun with even more people – especially those in areas in need of free, weekly community activities.

Check out our participant stories below to find out more about what makes parkrun so special.
