From the Run Director
As I am writing this post the heavens have opened and it is hammering down!
Thank you to the 134 parkrunners / plodders / strollers / stroggers and dogwalkers that rocked up today to make parkrun a great success!
The weather was extremely kind to us and apart from a few soggy feet (which wouldn't have happened had you had wellingtons on) we were all dry!
Over the finish line first in 20:25 seconds was junior female Annabel Lee, and hot on her heels with only a 3-second difference was Chris Merder - well done both!
We had 12 first timers today which is pretty awesome considering the weather - we hope you love our course as much as we do and hope to see you back soon.
12 must have been today's lucky number, because that how many PB's were accomplished - awesome!
10 clubs were represented and we had some visitors from Rocks Riverside, Wangaratta VIC and The Ponds in NSW!
A special mention to our touring Junior from The Ponds, Abigail STEPHENS who was lucky enough to complete her 10th parkrun at Cleveland! Well done Abigail, maybe you can come back and do your 50th milestone with us.
A massive THANK YOU to our wonderful volunteers who without you parkrun would simply not happen:-
Alex SAMPSON, Declan, Laila & Tess JARMIN, Gail & Ian LECKENBY, Jenny BINKS, Kerri MAURICE, Peta CLARK, Lisa WILSON, Greg KELLY.
This is me signing out and I shall be handing over the reins to Liv next week.
Have a safe weekend!
Lisa Wilson - RD

This Week’s Photos
Every week our photos are uploaded into our Photo Album which is on our Cleveland parkrun Facebook page. Anyone can view them, even if they’re not a Facebook user.
We also have an album for our parkrun Milestone Club recipients.
Friendly reminder that we do not accept parkrun barcodes on phones or watches. Our scanner is not reliable on devices so your barcode must be PRINTED. Please do not ask the volunteers to write your details down so you can be added to the results, you will be politely told no.
If you need to reprint your barcode but can’t seem to find the link… please click here print your barcode. If you'd like to buy a key tag or wrist band, you can find them at www.bentlogic.com.au. Go to the Bent Logic website to order yours today and remember… No barcode = No result, No exceptions.
