Carisbrooke Parkrun

Carisbrooke parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners/walkers of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 8am in Carisbrooke Park.

It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to run or walk together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever Parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then, just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there.

Every week we grab a post Parkrun coffee from Coffee Connoisseur - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

Another local 5km parkrun is held at Mawson Lakes every Saturday at 8am. The course is run on a mixture of concrete paths, sandstone paths and bitumen paths. It starts and finishes just metres from the local café and shopping precinct. Then, grab a post Parkrun coffee at local cafe Relish on Main.
