Curl Curl welcome Blackmores


It was only fitting to welcome our newest partner into the parkrun Australia family on a perfectly sunny Sydney morning last Saturday. We are thrilled to have Blackmores join us to ensure that we continue to provide free weekly events around the country.


Interim Managing Director, Blackmores Australia and New Zealand, Eric Jeanmaire, joined in on the weekly 5km event, commenting how proud Blackmores are to be joining parkrun Australia as an official wellbeing partner. “The energy and community spirit at parkrun is truly inspiring, and something we at Blackmores are proud to be a part of. parkrun empowers people of all ages and fitness levels to proactively move their body and look after their wellbeing which is something that Blackmores wholeheartedly supports,” he said.




The morning saw 460 parkrunners and walkers complete the picturesque leafy green course. The event team did a stellar job of ensuring everything was smooth sailing for the morning. Event Director Kim Joss said “The participants and RD team were buzzing! Fantastic event by our new national partner, Blackmores – amazing energy and encouragement from the Curl Curl parkrun community. Proud to be involved”
