Gilloolys parkrun


Discover the joy of a refreshing morning run through the picturesque landscapes of Gillooly’s Farm at the 5km parkrun, where participants gather to celebrate fitness, community, and the serene outdoors.

The course is 5000m (5k) long. This has been accurately measured by us with a professional measuring wheel. The course is at Gillooly’s Farm, 47 Boeing West Road, Bedfordview. The course is run on a mixture of trail paths, grass and paving. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.
