We all know that exercise has its benefits, from improving mental well being to reducing the risk of chronic health conditions, but are we doing anything about it?
With the start of spring and the warm weather peeking out from behind the clouds, what better time to unpack those joggers and go outside for a dose of vitamin D than now.
Rhodes Parkrun offers an opportunity for 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. No matter your ability, you can get involved in this great free event and get active for a 5km timed walk, jog or run.
Take in the beautiful views on your way with the course beginning in Concord West, Bicentennial Park just off Victoria Avenue, passing through Homebush Bay Drive and Rhodes Waterside shopping centre before heading back to finish in Bicentennial Park.
Saturday 3 September will see a special event, Personal Better Day, aim to encourage the community to join Parkrun and set their own ‘personal better’ by simply participating in the event, or by crossing the finishing line in record time.
With the target set for more than 25,000 Aussies to take part nationwide this weekend, grab a hat, some sunscreen and join in the fun to help set the new record.
When: 8:00am, Saturday 3 September 2016
Where: Rhodes parkrun, Bicentennial Park, Victoria Avenue entrance, Concord West
