What is Park2Park?
Park2Park is the Ipswich Hospital Foundation’s yearly fun run, raising awareness and vital funds for research initiatives, conducted by our local West Moreton Health researchers. Promoting physical activity, community and togetherness, Park2Park is our flagship fundraising event, helping to advance the local community and ensure that our people will have access to nearby healthcare for generations to come. The research conducted by West Moreton Health is focussed on the West Moreton region and deals primarily with issues that affect our community.
Park2Park has something for everyone! There is a course to suit any walker, giving participants of all ages and abilities to lace up their sneakers and take part in this awesome community event.
Will we see you at the starting line of the half marathon, 10km, 5km or the 2.5km course? You can help raise vital funds and awareness for the Ipswich Hospital Foundation.
Take a look at the course maps today.
Schools Shield Challenge
Unite your students and join us in the School Shield Challenge! With categories for both primary and high schools, one school from each category will take home the School Shield, bragging rights and the glory of helping an important local charity.
The Kid’s Challenge is a 400m obstacle course including balance beams, cargo net crawls, mini hurdles and more. It’s the perfect way to bond as a family and encourage your crew to work together and achieve a common goal. A safe and fun environment for both adults and children, all finishers receive a medallion to commemorate the day. Registrations are just $20 per person.
Local businesses, organisations and teams, this one is for you! Have you got a mascot looking for a fun way to engage with the local community? Look no further than the Mascot Marathon. The run (or shuffle in a lot of cases) is just 100m long and free to enter – but finishers do get to pass through the finish archway like a true champion! Winner of the Mascot Marathon will take home a perpetual trophy with their business name engraved for the year.
