Get involved in parkrun!
If you love running, parkrun Australia organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs right across Australia. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.
The events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and your ability is no factor in getting involved. parkrun encourage people of every ability to take part; from walkers or those taking their first steps in running to Olympians; from juniors to those with more experience; parkrun welcomes everyone.
parkrun: working with veterans and their families
There are more than 360 parkrun events operating around Australia every Saturday morning, meaning that there’s no excuse not to get involved!
In addition to establishing the ‘Veteran Sport Australia Running Club’, parkrun and VSA work together to promote veterans and their families getting involved – from running, jogging, walking, pushing the pram, walking to dog and joining the local volunteer management team. Together, we also promote events like Veterans’ Health Week.
