    Zillmere Parkrun

    Zillmere gives parkrunners something they cannot get from any other Parkrun in Australia. A Parkrun starting with the letter Z.

    Many parkrunners spend a lot of weekends away from their home Parkrun, trying to achieve a 'Parkrun Alphabet' by completing 20 parkrun courses starting with 20 different letters of the Alphabet. Many of these 'Parkrun Tourists' inevitably come to Zillmere Parkrun to get one of the rarest letters in Parkrun Tourism worldwide, the elusive 'Parkrun Letter Z'.

    People come from throughout Australia and even oversees to get their 'Z' and it is not uncommon to have a small number of oversees Parkrun Tourist at Zillmere Parkrun, seeing the sights, and ticking of their 'Parkrun letter Z'.

    Zillmere Parkrun has great, enthusiastic volunteers who do a wonderful job of catering to visiting parkrunners. Which makes sense considering how many Parkrun Tourist they help each week. In large part, it is the spirit of these volunteers that makes Zillmere such are great little Parkrun to attend. Each Saturday there is a relatively small crowd in attendance, but the atmosphere is great, and the local and tourist parkrunners are friendly.

    Zillmere Parkrun is a grass Parkrun, with a fair bit of variety throughout the course. It is an interesting course, but first time Parkrunners should pay attention during the pre-race briefing or they are liable to go the wrong way.

    There is plenty of space throughout the course making it an ideal course for giving your dog a good run. It is also great for those who prefer to avoid courses with harder surfaces due to issues with knees and other joints. However, as it is a grass course, it is not particularly suitable for those who are mobility impaired who would struggle on grass. The grass also makes it a slower course, so it is not likely to be the course you set your new PB on if that is something you care about.

    Visually the course is not overly exciting, and much of it is run around basic sporting fields. It does not compare with the scenery of other parkrun courses along rivers, waterways and through parklands. However, the friendly volunteers make it a great little Parkrun to visit to get your elusive 'Parkrun Letter Z'.
