WARRIOR parkrun

SATURDAY 2 September 2017

We have partnered with the great team at parkrun to bring you the inaugural WARRIOR parkrun on Saturday 2 September 2017.

All parkruns around the country will be in WARRIOR Run theme.

To be part of this special event, simply register here, turn up to your local (or any!) parkrun on Saturday 2 September at 8am and you will officially be a WARRIOR parkrunner – it’s as easy as that!

Everyone who registers will receive a specially designed WARRIOR Run medal featuring 2014 IMP Graduate from Thursday Island in the Torres Strait, Harold Matthew.


  • Individual - $30 ($20 tax deductible)
  • You and a friend - $55 ($40 tax deductible)
  • Family of four - $100 ($85 tax deductible)

NB: You can still attend parkrun and NOT officially register to be part of the WARRIOR parkrun. The difference is simply that those who register receive a medal. Medals will be posted after the event to the address used registration.
