Sri Chinmoy Minnippi Parklands 2.5km, 10km & 15km Runs
2.5km, 10km and 15km distances on a fast and flat course set amongst the beautiful scenery of Minnippi Parklands
About the event
All races start on the Bulimba Creek Bikeway about 100m west of the Stanton Road W car park at 7am.
The course is a 2.5km clockwise circuit through the beautiful Minnippi Parklands, incorporating a 500m out-and-back section at the southern end of the lake.
We are holding the 2.5km distance event for children only, but parents are welcome to run with the children. There will be awards for children U16, U12 & U8 for this distance but all children will receive a certificate. The 10km and 15km events will have gender-specific awards for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place getters in all age categories.
There are quite a few entrances into the park so make sure you put Stanton Rd W (not E) into your GPS. You'll come to carparking on your left and will see the start/finish to your right.
We will be offering our famous post race pancake breakfast for all participants.
Any queries please call Aparigraha on 0450 765 315. We look forward to seeing you there!

Social distancing and hand hygiene will be encouraged by both signage and announcements. Each race distance will start separately and may be further divided by category to reduce crowding at the start line.

Hand sanitiser will be present at a few locations but we encourage you to bring your own if concerned about hygiene.
2021 May 23rdMinnippi Parklands 15, 10 & 2.5km run 3 April 2022
We had an amazing event this morning even though we had to alter the course at the 10th hour. Minnippi Parklands tends to flood more than other parks and then water is slow to drain away. Runners are a resilient lot though and there were no complaints about the course changing from a loop to an out & back.
Post race pancakes were back on the menu for the first time post Covid. This is always popular with the kids.
We had a record number of kids running the 2.5km race today and with the 1.25km out then back, and with lots of other runners always in view, most kids were happy to run on their own. There was the odd enthusiastic parent struggling to keep up with their child and sorry that they had started. It was a very hot morning with mid morning temperatures up to mid 20's.
Some of our other runners were doing a Sri Chinmoy race for the first time and it's always nice to get their positive feedback. So if you'd like to encourage your friends to come and do a race then our next race is on Labour day Monday 2 May in the CIty Botanic Gardens.
We hope to see everyone there.
