Pakenham parkrun is a FREE weekly timed 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 8am in Pakenham, VIC, Australia, 56kms SE of the Melbourne CBD.
Pakenham parkrun is FREE and open to people of all standards and ages, both as volunteers and as runners / walkers. We encourage people of every ability to take part, from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians, from juniors 5 years or older to those with decades of experience. All runners receive encouragement and enjoy being part of a community event open to all standards. Equally, our volunteer teams come from a huge variety of backgrounds and we urge everybody to get involved in organising their local events at least 3 times per year.
