Wow! Burnie parkrun!!! Could this be the friendliest parkrun in Australia? We arrived in Tassie 6 days earlier and free camped nearby to ensure we would be close to the foreshore start line at Burnie parkrun. From the moment we walked up to the table to ask where we could put our keys we received a sincere and warm Tasmanian welcome! Everyone was laughing and smiling, despite the weather!
This was Running Around Australia‘s first stop on our Big Lap of Australia and we were a bit nervous taking all the kids along! We really had nothing to be nervous about. We were all welcomed with open arms and even though we took more than an hour to walk the 5km the tail runners still laughed and smiled with us the whole way around!
The course is a picturesque out and back along the ocean side paths, boardwalks and tracks of the Burnie foreshore. The views across the ocean are beautiful and running alongside the busy highway is actually quite interesting too! All the parkrun locals will cheer you on and motivate you while the up and back course ensures there are lots of high fives to go around!
