First Wondai parkrun draws in joggers from across state

WONDAI's first parkrun got off to a strong start at the weekend.

About 100 runners from across Queensland and the South Burnett registered for the event.

Joggers came from as far as the Gold Coast to take part in the 5km run along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

While the aim of the run is to get together, meet new people and go for a friendly jog there was clearly a little competition between some of the participants.

Soul Love, from Ballogie, crossed the line first with time just over 18.10 minutes.

While he came in first the engineering and science student prefers to cycle, riding 30km every day.

He is also an avid parkrunner but was missing his usuall parkrun buddy, Ethan Gunn.

"We always run together but he's just gone to America, so shout outs to Ethan,” he said.

"We usually do them in Brisbane together, side by side, always trying to beat one another.”

The Wondai parkrun will be held every Saturday at 7am behind the Wondai Timber Museum.

Anyone who registers can track their time on the official parkrun database to monitor their improving times.
