350th Edition And Running!

Tamborine Mountain Clocks Up 350 parkruns …

When Tamborine Mountain parkrun is held on the 10th of September, it’ll be celebrating its 350th edition! 

Held in 450 locations Australia-wide where joggers can walk, run, or even bring their dog along – since its humble beginnings in 2015 on the mountain, over 3,200 individuals have completed the five-kilometre parkrun – a massive feat considering the population size of Tamborine Mountain and its surrounds.

Some runners, such as local resident Jim O’Reilly, are completely committed to the free-timed weekly event. In July, Jim became the first local resident to complete 250 parkruns, of which only nine were not on Tamborine Mountain. Well done Jim!
