Runners ready for their 50th parkrun event

RATHER than spending their Saturdays sleeping in, these Ipswich runners are up bright and early to take part in the Augustine Heights parkrun event.

Every Saturday morning Narelle Cabassi, Joanne Black and Phil Cutcliffe lace up their runners and hit the pavement to smash out 5km.

But their run on Saturday, October 4 will be a little different, as they each have a big milestone to celebrate.

All three will take part in their 50th parkrun event.

Narelle Cabassi from Redbank Plains said the reason she kept coming back every weekend was because it was a fun and free workout.

"The Augustine Heights parkrun is a great way to stay in shape and to meet new people," she said.

"Running with others is a great way to keep you motivated."

Her dog Roxy will also notch up her 50th parkrun.

Their milestones will be reached on parkrun's international birthday.

The anniversary commemorates one decade since the launch of parkrun in England in 2004.

The event has become so popular that there are now more than 100 parkruns scattered across Australia.

The course starts at the picnic shelter across from 3 Renehan Place, on the corner of Santa Monica Dr Augustine Heights.
