Cairns parkrun # 197, 20 May 2017

Run report by Fiona Dix

It was a lovely fresh morning in Cairns for the 197th Cairns parkrun, a slight breeze and 22 degrees Celcius - there's no better time of year to run in the Tropics.

A steady field of 167 runners included visitors from South Africa, Geelong, Brisbane and NSW. Plenty of four-legged running companions out there today as well.

There were some big milestones for our runners, with a few of our locals joining the following clubs: Sandra Buckley 50 Club, run director Kelly Ryan 100 Club, and Craig Bowe 150 Club

First over the line was Jai Almanza, but no barcode today for Jai. First recorded time was Geoff Bull with 19 flat and a new PB. First recorded female was Madeline Philip in a time of 21.33. Runners, don't forget your barcodes, as no barcode = no recorded time. There are a lot of gaps this week.

There were 24 PBs recorded today, and great to have 14 first timers making their debut at the Cairns parkrun.

PBs:

Shout out to the parents of Pace Project running group who volunteered this morning. We hope you enjoyed the extra encouragement from the side lines.

Our parkrun volunteers for today were: Amanda ANDERSON, Jill BOLTZ, Jeanette BROWN, Jane BROWNING, Fiona DIX, Akane GOODE (her huband stepped in to help), Colleen HARISSON, Lorraine LAWSON, Heidi MCINTYRE, Joel MILLWOOD, John O'GRADY, Alex SMITH

Here is a second run report, just in case you missed something from the first one!

Run report by Joel Millwood

Welcome to our 197th run report! Today observed a fair turnout of 167 runners taking part in our 197th event. It was a glorious morning with the weather far more accommodating than it has been of late. Special thanks to the Pace Project group for volunteering this week and to all other groups that have helped out and will help out for past and future events.

Finally, a reminder to bring your barcodes with you. This week we had a total of 32 Unknown runners (approximately 20% of all runners that attended the event). Without registering before your first run and bringing a printed copy of your barcode we are unfortunately unable to give you a time.

Cairns parkrun Report #194 on 29 April 2017

Run report by Marcelle Kersenboom

There were again, ready for an awesome parkrun morning.  A whole 200 runners turned up, some with dogs.  It was lovely to see that we had so many first timers…the word must be getting out how awesome we really are!!

The weather was glorious too, not sure about the jumpers I saw runners wearing prior to the run, though!!

Thank you to one of regular kids who clearly demonstrated the ‘Lleytons stand’ (drinking from his water bottle, head tilted back)…maybe all the kids could it!

Congratulations to Caitlin Bowe on completing her 150 runs!!  She is from Derek Zoolander Centre for Kids Who Can't Run Good – how about that! The Derek Zoolanders are helping out as a group and volunteering on 13 May. Thank you.

Dynamic Running picked up the volunteering this week as the first NFP community group to help out in our current ‘Bring your NFP community group to help out’ campaign.  Thank you to club members Annalisa BALL, Diane BATTY, David ELMS, Leigh HOWSER, Alison JORDAN, Marcelle KERSENBOOM, Lorraine LAWSON, Stacey LONGMORE, Hedy VERHULST and Irene WILLIAMS. And thank you to others who also helped out on the day: Jane BROWNING, Shane BALL, Natasha BARKER, Christine CARLTON.

Dynamic Running was established in April 2014 as a local running club to meet the need for group training and coaching in a safe, supportive environment. For more information, visit their website http://www.dynamicrunning.com.au/ or facebook page https://www.facebook.com/dynamicrunningaustralia/
