Albury Wodonga parkrun will make a comeback on Saturday morning after a four-month hiatus due to COVID.
The weekly five-kilometre walk, jog or run endured several delays during the pandemic when it was put on hold from March 2020 to January this year, again coming to a halt again in August.
Events have been planned on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, which has participants excited.
"It has been a huge loss to the community and the reopening of parkrun events is set significantly improve the health and wellbeing of many people," event director Sarah Biggs said.

Events are held each Saturday and are free for all, with a one-off registration at parkrun.com.au/register.
