Yeldulknie Weir parkrun going strong as weather warms

The conclusion of winter sport and warmer weather has seen strong numbers at the Yeldulknie Weir parkrun this month.

The weekly Saturday morning run has drawn a steady crowd through its first winter, with 237 participants completing 716 runs since its launch in April.

The event has also attracted more than 50 volunteers, with some volunteering during a visit to Cleve and some offering to help out regularly.

Parkrun events are held every week at 8am in locations across Australia and the world, with participants encouraged to visit a local parkrun wherever they travel.

Participants can bring a dog or push a pram, with a volunteer tail walker tasked with making sure participants can walk at whatever pace they like without falling behind.

Tourists from regional South Australia, Adelaide and even other states have travelled to Cleve to participate over the first five months and get to know other participants over a coffee after the run.
