Parkruns are free timed 5km runs held every Saturday in many parks across the world.
Despite there being a parkrun fairly close to home in Auckland, ironically my first time was in Australia. I am in Canberra for two months studying at the Australian National University and discovered a Parkrun in one of the northern suburbs, Belconnen, so decided to have a go.
Ran 22:16 which I was happy with. Stats: 3rd female, 1st 20-24W, 23rd out of 124.
I cycled out early (8km) along the fantastic bike paths and afterwards rode around Lake Ginninderra before heading home. There are so many cycle ways here in Canberra!
