261 runners joined us to herald in a new course attendance record!!!!

Local Event Director, Gregor Sutherland ran his 100th run - a huge achievement, also volunteering 69 times since the 2nd ever Ginninderra parkrun. Gregor is a big motivator for many at Ginninderra, pushing people to new PBs and helping them achieve their individual goals. A huge thanks to Gregor for making sure parkrun continues each week at Ginninderra (with a lot of support from his wife and Co-Event Director, Sally Sutherland). Congratulations on this achievement, Gregor.

150 regulars, tourists from Melbourne, Sydney, Queensland and Finland - along with 15 first timers and New Year res(v)olutionist's - enjoyed a beautiful morning for the first Gindy parkrun for 2016.

Thanks to all of our wonderful and valuable volunteers, who without their support our parkrun just wouldn't happen week in week out. This week our volunteer team was made up of: Megan & Carys, Emily & William, Kikka & Luigi, Natty & Zoe, Geoff, Vince, Anthony and Chris.

Congratulations to Anita Scherrer for reaching the 50 run milestone also to Elspeth Nicholls and Natty B who both reached the 100 run milestone, while both technically achieved this significant milestone at the Gungahlin New Years day parkrun on January 1, Elspeth completed her 101st run on Saturday while Natty provided the wonderful photos as a volunteer.

Peter Ralston becomes the first Ginninderra parkrunner to reach the lofty heights of 150 parkruns, congratulation to Peter.

We welcomed 15 first time parkrunners and look forward to them becoming regular runners and seeing them back soon. The almost perfect running conditions saw 15 runners achieve new PB's that is a great achievement after coming off the Christmas New Year break. Well done to all.

Ginninderra parkrun Event number 190 – 19th December 2015

148 runners and walkers got their parkrun fix before the temperature at Lake Ginninderra got to the eventual high of 37 degrees. There were a lot of glistening and relieved participants crossing the finish line, including four first timers and tourists from as far afield as Maryborough, Rhodes and up the road: Gungahlin.

I'm not sure how Matt Cuzner, Daniel Josifovski, Walter Johansen, Peter Warrington, Nic Duncan, Dean Boland, Melinda Armstrong, Corrie Croton, Heather McDonald or Jodie Marland managed to run PB times, but well done to all of you. Exceptional effort in hot conditions.

Harry and Bruce accompanied Greg Leach on his 100th run - as they have done for so many of his tonne. It was great to see so many of Greg's extended family join in on this special milestone.

Jennifer Hummelshoj ran her 50th parkrun on the weekend. Looking forward to seeing you both wearing your milestone t-shirts at future runs.

If you've not claimed a milestone t-shirt or don't know how, click on 'manage my profile' in a results email from parkrun. There is an option to check your 'club progress' and if you have a milestone t-shirt owing, it will show in that page. Runners achieve club shirts at 50, 100 and 250 runs and volunteers achieve a special volunteer shirt after volunteering 25 times.

We are a little low on volunteers over the holiday season. If you can spare a couple of hours on a Saturday morning at Ginninderra or a parkrun near your holiday destination, please get in touch via email.

A huge thank you to everyone who bought their barcode over the weekend. Every single one scanned without incident which made scanning really straightforward for Holly and Meg and results processing quicker than usual for Anthony.
