Perth Prepares For parkrun

Perth parkrunner

The first official Perth parkrun takes place tomorrow (Saturday 30 November) following a successful trial run last weekend. The free, weekly timed 5k, will be held at North Inch and Riverside Parks at 9:30am.

Graeme Suttie, who took part in the recent trial run, said afterwards: "Enjoyed the dry run - good turnout considering it hasn't started yet, and it was -3. Thanks to everyone who got this off the ground, should be good." The Perth parkrun Facebook page posted after the trial run: "We're looking forward to all the visitors. We had a great practice this morning. All set for the first one next week."

They also updated about the weather for tomorrow's event: "Weather looks to be cold and dry. 1'C and a 6mph westerly breeze, wrap up and come down to Perth parkrun."
