If you are just a beginner runner or someone who is looking to improve your fitness or competitive time over a 10k or half marathon Parkrun is a great motivator.
Every Saturday morning at 8am you can join a group of like minded runners, joggers and walkers in Lower Hutt in Wellington and or Auckland for a 5km timed run. All you have to do is visit the Parkrun website and register to get a barcode – yes a barcode and bring that along to your run.
Once you finish your run or walk your time is captured & posted on the Parkrun website. This provides added motivation to come back each week and try and run faster. So check out Parkrun in Lower Hutt if you are living in Wellington to join up.
