A huge thank you to Matt and all the volunteers that made the New Years Day run possible.
On New Year's Day, a massive 154 runners took on the hills of Blackbutt to get their New Year off to a flying start. Nat Heath returned to The Butt for his first run since Blackbutt's inaugural run back in August, and he almost bared all for the occasion! A special mention goes out to Troy Green, Mark Northcott and Ben Petersen who ran all three region parkruns on the day AND cycled between each!
Event #23 was the first for 2014 and was a great day.
