Start your new year fitness routine with a weekly run

IF you're looking for a way to kickstart your new year fitness routine, consider joining Parkrun on Saturday at 7am.

Held every week at Lions Park, Parkrun is a free 5km course that is timed by volunteers.

Stockland Centre manager Amanda Brookes said numbers were a bit low this time of year as people went on holidays, but the event, which has been running since June, can sometimes attract up to 70 people.

"A lot of people that come love running. Others come to meet new people," she said.

Ms Brookes encouraged anyone to come along to Parkrun regardless of their experience or fitness level.

Parkrun is a nationwide initiative run in various parks across Australia.

People can register by visiting www.parkrun.com.au/gladstoneqld/ before their first run.
