Yamba parkrun on Saturday April 23

This coming weekend we are making walkers to parkrun extra welcome by encouraging all participants to hang around after their run and clap runners and walkers across the line. We have the 1 Ounce coffee van coming along to provide refreshment. We would love to invite you and your friends and family to join us to try parkrun and enjoy a coffee after.
