parkrun is a free, weekly, timed event which takes place at multiple locations world-wide every Saturday morning. There are two events in Townsville – at Riverway and North Shore.
The North Shore event is a 5km course that starts at Town Square, Main Street, which you can complete by running or walking (or both) and is for all ages. The event starts at 7am and finishes when the last participant crosses the line.
Children are welcome to join in prams or on bikes/scooters but will not get their own time and must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times if they are under 11.
Registration is free and available at parkrun.com.au/northshore. Once registration is complete, you will be emailed a barcode which you must bring to every event if you wish to receive a time. Your time will be emailed to you after each event.
