WONDAI'S much loved parkrun is having its second birthday this Saturday and you are invited to the party.

This free event has been a popular Saturday morning event for both established and beginner runners since its beginnings.

This Saturday, January 12, will be a celebration of two years worth of hundreds of South Burnett residents getting healthier and enjoying a great start to their weekend.

It is the general consensus that the coffee afterwards at some of Wondai's cafes is also a nice reward.

The theme for the birthday celebrations is orange and blue so participants are encouraged to dress up and get into the spirit of what parkrun is all about, having fun.

NO EXCUSES: Young runner, Olivia Fox does a personal best time despite having a broken arm.

Organisers will be serving chilled watermelon after the run for hot and sweaty, but mst deserving participants.

For those who want to aim for a personal best time, there will be pacers wearing balloons to guide runners to a specific result.

FAMILY AFFAIR: parkrun is an event for all the family.
