Ginninderra parkrun - Event number 217 - 25th June 2016

It was a beautiful crisp, sunny Winter’s day at Gindy this week, the first run after the Winter Solstice. Amateur photographers could be seen out on course, taking snapshots of frozen puddles, kangaroos and snow covered mountains in the distance. Our photographer Heather captured some beauties on course as well, look out for the frosted leaves in this week’s photos.

Well done to Roger ABBOTT and William ROBERTS on joining the 100 club demonstrating the broad spectrum of appeal of parkrun!

Congratulations to our 10 first timers for coming out and enjoying the morning with us. Congratulations also to our 17 runners who managed to  get PBs this week - well done!

Welcome to our South African visitors, Keith and Cheryl JOLLY, and Alison BEDFORD from Toowoomba, Queensland. We hope you enjoyed your run.

Thanks to  all our volunteers, Avril and Rachel POUNDS on tokens;  Christian DUSSAULT (ably assisted by son, Nicolas*) on tailrunning;  Erin HUNT, Jennifer KELLETT and Peter EVANS on marshalling; Walter JOHANSEN  and Freddie HAYES on barcode scanning and Heather MCDONALD on photography and, the run went off with textbook precision. Poor Freddie is nursing an injury, but made the most of it by helping out his fellow parkrunners instead. Canberra being Canberra, Freddie and Walter got to know each other and worked out they had mutual close friends, while waiting for the first of the runners to thunder across the line.

*leaving Manon DUSSAULT on her own with nothing else to do but get a  huge PB!

Gindy parkrun #216 run report 18 June 0216

Well done to all the parkrunners who braved the rainy weather and enormous puddles to run on Saturday morning! And an enormous shout out to our wonderful volunteers for making it possible!

We welcomed runners from as far afield as Tuggeranong and Queensland and five first timers. We hope you enjoyed your run and come back again when the course is not under water!

Despite the damp conditions 8 parkrunners managed a PB! Congratulations to Connor McElwee, Quiang Liu, Walter Johansen, Craig Elliot, Paul Foley Yingjun Zhang, Emma Johnson and Motoki Kuzuyama.

Special congratulations today to Justine Bayliss who ran her 50th parkrun!  Justine has completed 47 of her 50 runs at Ginniderra.

Justine has a PB of just over 34 minutes, almost 10 minutes quicker than her first. Justine exemplifies the ethos of parkrun. She is often accompanied by her dog Bunny and she and Bunny have volunteered 10 times since their first run in June 2014. As part of her parkrun journey Justine shared with us she has lost 28kg and is now a fitter healthier and happier parkrunner. Happy parkrunning!

Wonderful wet one-hundred onesie walk

One of Ginninderra’s most prolific junior runners completed her 100th milestone this week taking an onesie walk with her family.

Chloe Miller was so determined to achieve her milestone, that not even a recently broken arm and a down pour could hold her back. So with her parents, Celina and Kevin, and brother Jacob, Chloe donned her onesie and poncho to make it around the Ginninderra loop. The day was made extra special with her grandfather, Ron becoming a first time parkrunner completing the run in a respectable 36:52.

Still in the JW10 category, Chloe is already racking up some impressive stats. Her first run was completed in November 2012 in a time of 30:49; she has since recorded 12 PBs to achieve a time of 22:56 with an age grade rating of 79.00%.

Of her 100 runs, 92 have been completed at Ginninderra, the remainder being at Gungahlin, St Peters, Mosman, Clermont Waterfront, East Coast Park, Cairns, and Maribyrnong.

Congratulations on achieving your 100th milestone run Chloe! We look forward to celebrating more milestone runs and celebrating your athletic achievements!
