parkrun is an organisation that started in the UK a few years ago with a single weekly event, there's now over 70 races every weekend. parkrun found it's way to Australia recently and we recently launched in Sydney on Jan 21st. There is now a parkrun on every Saturday morning at 8am in Sydney Park, St Peters.
It's a free, timed, weekly 5K run. Weekly results are tracked online.

We're completely volunteer run, and the more volunteers we have the less often we'll need each person to volunteer. I know the Gold Coast team have a huge roster of volunteers and they only need each person to volunteer at one event every couple of months.
