Judging by the name you'd be forgiven for thinking that Wagga Parkrun is all about running.
The event is about much more than tackling five kilometres according to run director Kate Williamson.
"It's about getting people out and moving and having something to work towards," Kate said.
"That might be their own goal achieving personal time or getting out and having a stroll.
"A lot of people don't always get time for themselves and that is really important to do - it's good for you.
A lot of people think Parkrun is just for runners but it's not it's for everyone.Run director Kate Williamson
"It's for walkers, it's for families - everyone.
"You're timed but it's against your personal best not anyone else.
"How you want to participate is up to you.
"No one is frowned upon its all inclusive."
Wagga Parkrun started on September 2, 2017 and has seen more the 1200 people take part since.
Together these people have run, jogged or walked a combined total of 23,265 kilometres or 1.6 trips around Australia.
The response from the Wagga community towards Parkrun has been extremely positive with more than 300 people turning up for the launch of the event in 2017.
Since then numbers vary for runs but it averages around 100 people each Saturday.
These people aren't just getting together and getting their 30 minutes of exercise they're also connecting with other people in the community.
"The amount of people I've met through Parkrun is incredible," Kate said.
"You really get to connect to more people in the community."
Like with all community events volunteers are always needed.
"Getting volunteers is one of the hardest things," Kate said.
Volunteering at Parkrun is easy and fun with all training provided and the support of the run director at all times.
One Parkrun saw children make up the entire volunteer team from the run director to photographer to timekeepers.
"It was a totally different feel. It was all about kids giving back to Parkrun," Kate said.
"We had an 11-year-old give the brief."
Volunteers are also used on the run itself with pace runners on course to help people achieve a certain time.
People have also used Parkrun in their training for marathons, fun runs and school cross-country events.
"I really love it," Kate said.
"It's great to see people out there giving it a go no matter their age of fitness level."
