Ginninderra parkrun – Event number 126 – 20 September 2014

Pampered by the glorious morning, 180 runners savoured the 5 km distance which is 50:50 aerobic : anaerobic.

The wonderful volunteers were : Kim Falco who ran back and forth 180 times with finish tokens, Caroline Ballard who teamed with Bianca, Joshua and Rael Kimpton marshalling. Anthony and Lauren Haber ran a tight ship directing and timekeeping, and Kati Reeves went bar code hunting with Jacqui Raby. Mark Riley took breathtaking glamour action shots and Caitlin and Julie Bowe wore fake tails for all tail runners.

First female home, Michelle Pearson scored one of the 40 new PBs. First male to cross the line was first timer, Matthew Berrington who ran 3:30 / km, exactly the same pace he did in the 2014 Canberra Times 10 km. Elspeth Nicholls and Nathan Johnson did penultimate 50 runs.

Such a beautiful spot to start your Saturday. Coming home off the bridge, Catherine Burns and Tracy Grealy had an encounter with a kangaroo. Bar codes were left tied to old shoes instead of new. Well done David and Ruth for making Baussman the most common name amongst the finishers (six).
