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!
Please take note:
Daylight saving start times for Summer
On Sunday, September 30th daylight saving starts so on the following Saturday 6th October all Southland parkruns will revert back to 8.00 am start times for the Summer months.
Dunedin, Invercargill, Wanaka, Balclutha and Queenstown will all be starting at 8.00 am from October 6th
