This is an out and back course, starting near the Weston Park playground, and running along the path out towards the park entrance. Following the path from the start, the lake will remain on your left until you meet the turn-around point - then head back the same way you came. This is a gently undulating course that starts on gravel before quickly transitioning to newly laid bicycle path, and is suitable for prams and dogs on leads. To the left of the path is the beautiful Lake Burley Griffin, with Black Mountain in the background. You wind your way back out towards the park entrance, before turning at the 2.5km mark (marshal on site) and head back the same way - providing high-5’s to your fellow parkrunners. Facilities Toilets are located in the park, along with plenty of free parking and children’s playgrounds. Getting There Location of startThe run starts near the Weston Park playground.
