Parkun director Margie Lewis gets ready to start the weekly Saturday morning event.

TAREE parkrun has averaged 100 starters since it started here in May 2015.

The 5km community run starts at 8am every Saturday, regardless of the weather. Margie Lewis and Janelle Jefferies were largely responsible to bringing parkrun to Taree. Margie was the guest on Friday Sport Talk this week.

She outlined the journey that was required to bring parkrun to the area and the first day nerves when parkrun made its debut.

Parkun’s popularity shows no sign of waning. Margie also explained what it takes to ensure the weekly run goes ahead and what a difference it has made to those who take part.

Next Friday United first grade captain Ricky Campbell will be the Friday Sport Talk guest at a time to be finalised. This will be on the eve of the opening day of the inaugural Mid North Coast Premier League cricket competition.
