Ginninderra parkrun – Event number 219 – 9th July 2016

A beautiful sunny morning welcomed 136 participants, and celebrated Run Director Brad Hetharia's 100th parkrun, and he has volunteered an additional 46 times, including 16 times as run director.  Other than than the 74 Gindy runs completed, Brad has also run at 13 other parkruns; 12 in Australia (including all Canberra runs); and one in the USA - Crissy Field in San Francisco. Brad has been at the first run for Gungahlin, Tuggeranong and Lake Burley Griffin; and the second ever Gindy run. Brad is at the pointy end of things, and has been first finisher 22 times, and I am reliably informed that Brad was the first person ever to complete the Tuggeranong parkrun! Congratulations Brad!

A very warm welcome to our first timers, Jason, Ella, Tegan, Katy, Erin, Craig and Catherine, and to our visitors from Gungahlin (Andy and Sontao). An amazing 24 of our runners also obtained PBs this week - this is a very high number for one day. Well done to everyone!

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!
