Easy, Regular Walking at one of Parkrun’s 35 South Australian locations

With 35 locations around South Australia each Saturday morning, Parkrun welcomes walkers as well as runners.

Parkruns are free, socially-focussed 5km community events. Everyone in the community is invited to get involved – as walkers, runners and volunteers.

It’s a great community, you’ll meet new people, and enjoy the coffee afterwards at a local cafe or meeting place.

Physical activity is good for everyone and can have particular benefits for Australians aged 65 and over – for example, more energy and less fatigue, reducing the risk of falls, helping maintain physical strength and balance, improving cognitive function, preventing loneliness and helping people stay independent for longer.

The events are truly intergenerational and can be enjoyed together in the great outdoors by people of all ages.

Parkrun registration is free at parkrun.com.au/register. Just print your unique Parkrun barcode, which is then valid at any Parkrun anywhere in the world every Saturday morning. Events begin at 8am and are held every week of the year.
