This year’s event will be the 4th edition of the fun run and welcomes Autism Spectrum Australia as a charity partner which runners may donate or raise funds for. Parkes Rotary are the hosts of the fun run and will also be donating funds raised from the run to local projects.

There will be 2 drink stops along the way.

About Autism Spectrum Australia

Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is Australia’s leading not-for-profit provider of services and supports working with people on the autism spectrum and their families. Knowledge about autism has come a long way since 1966 when six families founded Aspect as The Autistic Children’s’ Association of NSW to provide schooling and support. Now, 50 years on, Aspect operates the world’s largest network of schools and satellite classes for students on the spectrum and is approved to provide a range of therapy, intervention and lifestyle options under the National Disability Insurance Scheme. The charity offers services across all life stages to more than 14,000 Australians on the spectrum and their families each year.

The Northparkes Fun Run welcomes participants to raise funds or donate to ASPECT. More details coming soon.

What happens at the Start?

The start line will be on Nash St just ahead of the railway line adjacent to Harrison Park.  Runners will be asked to assemble on Harrison Park and then will move to the start line as a group.  Runners need to report to be ready to go around 10 minutes before their race. There will be NO SEEDING groups on the start line so we ask that all runners use common sense to SELF SEED themselves. This means faster runners start at the front, moderate runners in the middle and slower runners/walkers at the back. Any prams should also start at the back. There will be a few brief words and a nice little gee up from the Mayor before we send you on your way.

Where are the drink stations?

There will be TWO drink stations on the 5km course (approx. 2k and 4k) and THREE drink stations on the 10km course (approx. 2k, 4k, 6k, 8k). At the finish you will be provided with a final drink station which will have water and cordial.

Are there km distance markers?

Every km will be marked accurately and identified as either 5k or 10k distance markers.

Where are the toilets?

A men’s and women’s toilet block will be available. Extra toilets will be brought in should numbers require it.

Is there parking?

Plenty of Parking will be available surrounding Harrison Park. Parking attendants will not allow parking on the course however so please allow parking attendants to direct you on the day.

Can my club or school set up a tent?

Yes! Clubs/schools are invited to set up their club tents on Harrison Park. Please email [email protected] to book a position for your tent.

What happens at the Finish Line?

The finish is quite exciting for both participants and spectators. Both the 5k and the 10k will share the same finish line. Smile and enjoy your moment as you cross the finish line! You must also ensure that you cross the BLUE FINISH MATS with your timing chip attached to your shoes! Do not slow down until after you cross the mats.

After the finish volunteers will direct you to the post event recovery area where water, sports drink and fruit will be available. Your timing chip will also be collected in this area and placed in the buckets provided. Do not leave with your timing chip!

How can I view my official result?

Runners will be able to see their result on the main score board as soon as they cross the finish line! Live results will also be found via the ANSW live results page; http://www.nswathletics.info/liveresults/  This link will also be active on this website.
