Ginninderra parkrun #165 – Sat 27th June

A cold and foggy morning left many of our 140 parkrunners asking where the winter sun had gone. parkrun #165 was one of celebration and commiseration as we saw Run Director, Anthony Haber lace up for his 50th run and farewell the Cooper family.

As always special thanks go to our amazing volunteers without whom the run would not happen. This week's volunteers were: Roger Abbott, Craig Baker, Justine Bayliss, Catherine Burns, Robyn Guthrie, Shane Hutchison, Debbie O'Donoghue, Gregor Sutherland and Sally Sutherland.

50 run celebration
Anthony Haber racked up his 50th parkrun this week in a time of 18:29. Anthony's first Gindy run was on 30 June 2012 in a time of 25:58 and holds a PB of 15:20. 48 of his 50 runs have been at Lake Ginninderra, with the others being at Albert Park in Melbourne and at Gungahlin.

Anthony became a run director in 2013 and has overseen 11 parkruns in that time, as well as volunteer for numerous other times.

We often see Anthony crossing the line and looping back to join his wife, Lauren and son, Zaiden as they complete the course.

Congratulations on your 50th run Anthony.

Cooper family shout out

The Cooper family is perhaps one of the most dedicated parkrunning families, with Mark, Jo and kids Imogen and Jessica regularly hoping in the car at dawn to travel down the Federal Highway from Goulburn to join the Ginninderra parkrun family.

Between them the Cooper's have run the Gindy parkrun 140 times (with either Mark or Jo pushing Jessica in the pram) and volunteered 13 times.

They have participated in parkruns across the country and more recently in the UK while on what can only be described as a running vacation, with Mark participating in the Paris Marathon, two half marathons an a 10km in the space of five weeks. Not to be outdone, Jo also put a couple of half marathons under her belt on the trip as well.

The family will be moving to Newcastle in the next couple of days as Mark takes up a position with the Diocese of Newcastle. They will now be within 5 minutes of their local parkrun, and we are sure they will be looking forward to the Saturday sleep-in!

We wish them good luck in their new adventure and hope that if they ever find themselves back in Canberra they will come join us at Ginninderra.
