What is Personal Better?

Personal Better is about participation not performance, crossing the finish line no matter what pace or time, and continuing to better yourself.

Medibank and parkrun have partnered to help you achieve your Personal Better. Every Saturday morning, in {{locationCount}} locations across Australia, free 5km walks are happening.

So, what's your Personal Better?
