What is TRACKrun?
This event, put on by Athletics NSW & Run NSW and supported by parkrun Australia, is designed for people of all abilities to try running on the track and break their 5km parkrun PB!
Note that this is not an official parkrun. It will not count towards your parkrun milestone shirt, and your barcode is not required. Its the one time you can say ‘DO forget your barcode!’
5K (or 12 and half laps), is a distance that suits all levels and all ages particularly those that regularly compete in parkrun events. TRACKrun will feature 5-6 graded races based on your entry time.
Following your run there is then the opportunity to go across to the main stadium and watch the NSW 5000m Championships. TRACKrun will have a welcoming & relaxed atmosphere. Most importantly, be ready to have some fun and try and beat your PB!
Online entry will close at midnight Thursday 11 February.
Please note, all entries must be submitted online. Late entries MAY be accepted on the day if vacancies remain, but they are not guaranteed.
Cost of entry into the RunNSW 5k is $20.
Timing will be done via the Athletics NSW timing system with results made available shortly after each wave.
The final timetable for the TRACKrun 5K events will be drawn up at the completion of online entries which close 11:59pm Thursday 11 February.
