Coburg Parkrun, Victoria

My first running event with Coburg group organised by Parkrun. Good to see people out with families, buggies and the hardcore runners. It’s a 5 km loop course around Coburg Lake, with a couple of hills to give you a challenge. My goal for this morning was to keep running non-stop for the whole course and I have achieved this :)

This is my first time running around Coburg area, and I gladly will try to run everyday Saturday with the Coburg Parkrun group. It will help me to keep motivated and most importantly it’s so nice to be running with a group. For me, I will be more motivated to run better and fast knowing there’s a friendly group.

The Results Here

Not bad, I came 30th for my first Coburg Parkrun.

Thanks to the great effort by the organisers and volunteers, without them it woudn’t happen. It was a really smooth operation, we got our time to help keep track of our performance but it’s not all about the race. It’s about having fun with similar minded company.

Great turn ups for the first Coburg running group, friendly people and a great way to meet new people who’s into being out and about, getting into fitness, health and wellbeing.

I would suggest people who live nearby come on down to this event every Saturday at 8 am for some good old fashion running. And if you are far away there will be groups near you, all you have to do is registered and find a location near you and turn up.
