parkrun is not a race against other runners, but a 5km timed run, jog or walk. It can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that’s for fun or as part of a training plan.
Dubbo parkrun offers an opportunity for all members of our local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy our beautiful Macquarie River and get physically active in the process. We want to encourage people to walk, jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!
Taking part is easy – just register in advance by 6pm on the Friday before your first ever parkrun event. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!
We wish to make the run as safe as possible, so runners, spectators and helpers are asked to take care about the following:
-Please be considerate to the park and other park users at all times.
-Children under the age of eleven must be accompanied (within arm’s reach) throughout the run by a parent, guardian or appropriate adult of the parent’s choice.
-Please arrive by foot, by pedal-power or by public transport if you can – your efforts help to reduce our impact on the park and the planet.
-Please consider volunteering to help occasionally – this event survives only because of your generosity – please visit the volunteer page for more information.
-Take care near roads and car parks – some vehicles drive very quickly. Please congregate away from the cars and be careful in particular if you have children. If you’re driving to the run, please drive carefully even if you’re late!
-When running, take care on uneven surfaces – whether on grass or on tarmac. Watch out for cyclists, other runners, pedestrians, children, dogs, wildlife, park animals, vehicles, park maintenance work, falling branches, bollards, posts and other obstacles around the course.
-Please ensure that you are fit enough to walk, jog, run 5k (3.1 miles) with us. Health advice about running can be found at the excellent Runners’ Medical Resource website (although this external website focuses on preparation for a race and does not describe parkrun events).
-Remember to warm up before the run.
-If you see a runner with a serious problem, please stop to help them out and get help as soon as possible.
-If you’re watching, keep clear of runners on the course, and look after any children and dogs you may have with you.
-Runners wishing to run with a dog are welcome, but please keep the dog on a short lead or harness and under control throughout the event. Please also review the parkrun support page article about running with a dog at parkrun events.
-Runners pushing buggies are also welcome, but please take extreme care of other runners around you. If possible start from the back of the field and try to keep to one side of the main body of runners.
