Hamilton parkrun


Hamilton parkrun is a free, weekly five kilometre timed run, walk or jog around Lake Hamilton for people of all abilities.

It is not a race against other runners, but a five kilometre timed run, jog or walk. It can really be whatever you want it to be, for fun or as part of a training plan.

Hamilton parkrun offers an opportunity for all members of our local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy our beautiful Lake Hamilton and get physically active in the process.

People are encouraged to walk, jog or run together irrespective of their ability - this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is free.

Taking part is easy - just register in advance by 6:00pm on the Friday before your first ever parkrun event. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once. Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there.

Meet at the Lakes Edge Adventure Playground, Rippon Road Hamilton.
