The first Perth parkrun will be held on Saturday 30 November 2013. The free 5k, timed event will take place at North Inch and Riverside parks at 9:30am with participants being invited for coffee afterwards at the Bell's Centre Café.
The course is run on a mixture of tarmac paths, rough gravel paths and grass paths. Participants are warned that some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain.
The announcement follows the launch of Victoria parkrun on 12 October, bringing the total number of parkruns in Scotland to 12. Organisers are currently looking for people to volunteer at the event. If you're interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org
