Carlanstown 221218


There is a small car park on site at this rural parkrun, but cars are sometimes parked on the grass, meaning there should be enough room to park if you travel by car. Public transport is not really an option. There are no toilets or changing facilities.


This run is made up of three undulating laps around the outside of the park, which altogether means that there is plenty of climbing to be done at this parkrun. The surface is mostly light gravel. Distance markers along the route let you know how far you have gone. The park itself is quite open, and being in such a rural location is very quiet and peaceful.


Coffee is had in a cabin near the finish line where you can discuss your run with your fellow parkrunners

Seeing new parkruns being set up in small communities is testament to the enduring popularity of the parkrun organisation and the volunteers that make these events happen.
