Ginninderra parkrun #117 19th July 2014

Run report courtesy of Peter Ralston.

Tourists from Cairns and Sydney noticed the frozen bubbler and the zero degrees. 124 hearties who scorned to live ‘sans parkrun’ had the best start you can have to any Saturday. How awesome were our volunteers! On barcode scanning : Kay Blemings, [applause] who is recovering from ankle surgery. On run directing and time keeping: Brad Hetharia, Ellie Sobey and Thiet Huynh. Photographic genius: Laura Purcell. Marshalls : Emily Gearside and James Minto. And handing you your finish tokens : legendary Roger Abbott.

Congratulations to Victoria Roberts and Mark Lound on achieving your 50th runs. Congratulations also to Jess Jefferys, Run Director at New Farm. Jess has volunteered 55 times, done 23 runs at Ginninderra, and 27 runs at 22 other events. A 50 shirt presented by Russ is the least you deserve Jess!

21 new PBs included a 2 minute PB to Jacqui Warden. Second-placed Lachlan Dow was one of 14 first timers. Lachlan has World Orienteering Championships 2014 form and could be ramping up to a new PB now he has memorised the Gindy course.

Safety reminders. Respect any black ice and be courteous to other users of the park. Keep left on the paths and road at all times.

Gindy parkrun #116 run report 12 July 2014

Bill Lockley, Brian Daly, Kate Jackson, Kikka Happonen, Kristie Broadhead, Lara-Kym Lever, Lucy McGarva, Melissa McClusky, Roxanne Miller volunteered for the very chilly Gindy parkrun #116. A big thank you to Paparazzi Pete - Peter Ralston for writing this week's run report.
Whether you were sharing the experience as a volunteer or as one of the 120 runners, parkrun has many different significances for so many different people and their dogs. There were 14 first-timers and 19 new PBs, none shinier than that of second-timer, Nola Sloan and her dog Monty, other than perhaps the 2 minute PBs by William Barlow and Francela Barba, or the 4 minute PB by Pj Ann Aguilar.
Jessica Baird led the ladies home in a time of 22:39, the first, first-timer to do this. Anthony Haber, first home for thr boys ran the fastest time that anyone has run at Gindy since October 2013, achieving a 20 second PB of 15:20. Victoria Roberts did her penultimate run for the 50 T, already achieved by sisters, Tegan and Emily.
Run Directors Kate and Mel welcomed tourists from Queensland, Newcastle and from Ireland where the runner belongs to the Crusaders Athletics Club Dublin and post-parkrun coffee is in the cafe in the castle. Something for your parkrun tourists’ bucket list!

Volunteers were Chris Lamb, Debbie O’Donoghue, Emily Roberts, Geoff Simmons, Philippe Macleod, Rowan Beggs-French, Tania Marx, Tony McDonald, Tracey Grealy and a couple of little people who offered their high fives to 96 runners from the safety of their pram.

The wind was 20 kph (or 5 km in 15 minutes). The 6 degree temperature was only truly felt by the parkrun tourist from Queensland where tomorrow many Gindy regulars will test themselves in the Gold Coast Marathon. First home for men and women were David Beaven and Judith Williams. Roxanne Miller completed her 50th run, her many supporters getting exclusive coverage for their message via our Facebook page.

Turning up to shine after 7 months were Kikka Happonen and Luigi Spagnolo. Welcome back. One of the 12 first timers who heard about parkrun on ABC 666 met some of the parkrun media stars over coffee: Sally, Gregor, Graham and Trevor. After 9 volunteer days Graham Burke blew the cobwebs out with his best time this year.

Ginninderra parkrun 28 June 2014 – thanks to Peter Ralston

The Run Director presented a 50-run Tshirt to James Minto and wished good luck to those in the Gold Coast marathon and half-marathon next weekend. We applauded our volunteers: Andrew Warden, Graham Burke, Jacqui Warden, Jaycob McMahon, Kate Ridderhof, Kim Falco, Neill Taylor, Roger Abbott and Shane Hutchison.

The forecasted front was delayed so 132 runners enjoyed 9 degrees and a 24 km/hour wind. To those 20 runners who scored new PBs may the wind be always at your back. Amongst the 19 first timers was Melissa Vanderhaak from parkrun Riverway, Townsville.

Emily Gearside and first woman home, Melissa McClusky brought up their 50th runs. Congratulations!

Melissa ran in 20:57, typically 1 second different from her very first parkrun. Thanks Mel for your great contribution to Run Directing and for volunteering 28 times. And for having 41 run times at Gindy with an average deviation from the mean of 13 seconds!!

During recovery at Birrigai cafe the newest parkrun, Singapore was included in the travel plans of at least two local parkrun identities.
