The Devonport parkrun is a free, weekly, 5km timed run and is linked to sister events around the world. It is open to everyone, free, and is safe and easy to take part in.
This event takes place every Saturday at 8am commencing from the Mersey Bluff.
Whilst a timed run, everyone participates at their own pace and for their own enjoyment. You are able to compete against yourself to achieve a “personal best” time or as my wife Susanne & I simply walk the course, it is up to you.
You do need to register prior to your first run at http://www.parkrun.com.au/devonport/ and then bring your barcode with you.
It is a great activity, which is entirely organised by volunteers and where participants warmly encourage each other. I now encourage you all to come down to the Bluff and join in.
