GreenWay park run
GreenWay park run is a free 5km timed run - it's you against the clock. Participants run for their own enjoyment so you can join in whatever your pace!
It doesn't cost anything to join but please register before your first run. You only need to register once and this will give you a barcode that you need to bring on the run. This barcode will give you a time for your run so you can track your progress and set goals for yourself.
For more information and to register visit the GreenWay parkrun website
When: Saturdays 8am
Where: Richard Murden Reserve, Hawthorne Parade, Haberfield
