Let’s get ready to Rainbow!


Medibank is a proud partner of both the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and parkrun. This year, Mardi Gras is celebrating 40 wonderful years, and we’re looking for parkrunners to help us celebrate!


During the opening weekend of the festival, three parkruns around Sydney will turn into ‘rainbow parkruns’. On Saturday 17 February, come dressed in your best rainbow gear. Your local parkrun organiser will pick the best dressed, who will win a family pass to the Rainbow Family Fun Day.

Rainbow parkruns will be held from 7am at: 


See you there!
