What is Parkrun Tamworth?
It is a 5km run – it’s you against the clock.
When is it?
Every Saturday at 8:00am.
Where is it?
Parkrun Tamworth takes place at Tamworth, NSW, 2340. See Course page for more details.
What does it cost to join in?
Nothing – it’s free! but please register before your first run. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won’t get a time.
This is an out-and-back course. The course starts between the Paradise Tourist Park and Hungry Jacks in Peel Street. The course runs behind Hungry Jacks, past the velodrome and through Bicentennial Park along the concrete path parallel to the Peel River for 2.5km. At this point you will turn around and head back to the starting point to finish your parkrun.
There are a few short ups and downs where the path goes under some roads but it is primarily flat. The width of the path only varies a little bit. At times you will run in the shade of the trees, at other times you will be out in the open with beautiful views of the Peel River.
Course tips: At path intersections, always turn toward but not over the river. The edges of the path are not even with the grass in places so please take care when moving off the path or overtaking.
Unfortunately, there are no public toilets near the start/finish area.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no water source at the start/finish area. If you need water, please bring it with you.
Free car parking is available in the carpark or in Murray Street, East Street or Peel Street.
