We welcome East End, New Plymouth into the parkrun fold on Saturday 22nd and wish them all the very best for their inaugural run!
They start on a day when around the country a number of parkruns are having a ‘tutu’ parkrun, just for the fun of it (including Invercargill pictured above) and evidently the next one coming this year is 22 December!
