Ginninderra parkrun – Event number 147 – 14 February 2015

A coolish and very calm Saturday morning provided ideal walk/jog/run conditions for Ginninderra parkrun event number 147.

236 parkrunners decided to begin their Saturday by finishing Gindy parkrun. It would seem that summertime training and consistency may be paying off for some, as this event recorded a whopping 54 New PBs. 25 first timers joined the parkrun phenomenon - one of which was our first-placed lady, Cassondra Haider.

This event realised the 113th run of our resident report writer, Peter Ralston. Kevin and Jacob Miller notched up their 50th parkrun, as did Roger Abbott.

Currently, the annual points competition is close between the Men. Only eight points separate Craig Baker (3668) and David Bevan (3660) who both belong to the same age category.

A huge thanks goes out to our volunteers for the day: Amy and Fran Freeman, Anthony and Lauren Haber, Kristen Laurent, Greg Leach, Harry Mcdermott, Jodie Murray, Emily Roberts, Monika Schmidt and Gemma Wilson.

Until next time, Don't Forget Your Barcode!

Ginninderra parkrun #144 Saturday 24 January 2015

Thank you to roving parkrun reporter Peter Ralston for the Run Report.

Run Director, Kate Jackson acknowledged the traditional owners of the land then launched 236 parkrunners into the Australia Day long weekend. Many thanks to our magnificent volunteers: Gary Bowen, Gemma Wilson (hop along bar code reader with three deputies), Kellie Grubb, Michael Aisbitt (super substitute Run Director), Michael Daly, Peter Ralston, Susan Hammond, Timothy Bogie and Victoria Roberts.

First woman home was first timer, Lesley Walker, followed by Breanna Gasson (new PB!) and Judith Williams close behind in third place. Good on you to the 33 parkrunners who clinched New PBs in 22 degree heat – and welcome to the 35 first timers who included visitors from Mosman, Blackbutt, Merimbula, Rockingham, Cairns and St Peters.

Unusually for the men, it was a young gun, SM20-24 David Turner who was first home, followed by Alistair McCluskey. Fittingly for the day, third place-getter, James Sawyer, was a visitor from Nonsuch London. Within 13 km of Nonsuch there are 10 parkruns. Samuel Johnson did not say ... “When you’re tired of London parkruns, you’re tired of life...” but there are 45 of them in London.

Amongst all the Aussie flags, top hats and Vegemite jar ear rings, William Roberts JM11-14 was judged best dressed. Well done to Kim Blackmore, Robert Solomon and Neill Taylor who finished 50 runs. Encouragement to Natalie Bush, Catherine Burns, Bianca Kimpton, Lyndsay Currie and Jenny Jacobs who have reached the turn around point (25 runs).

The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) half marathon was held at 6:30 am at Reconciliation Place on Sunday 25 January. parkrun wishes all Deek’s runners good luck for the Tokyo marathon on 21 February 2015.

Ginninderra parkrun – Event number 143 – 17 January 2015

Run report courtesy of Peter Ralston.

In blissful 19-degrees and 50% humidity, 222 runners held fast in the left lane until it was safe to pass. 48 new PBs prove this sensible KEEP LEFT rule need never be broken. The numbers were over 200 for the third time and the paths are not getting any wider. A huge thank you to our volunteers on duty.

Vanessa Haverd ran a super quick PB to be first female home. Martin Dent topped the age grade and was first male to finish.

The 25 juniors included JW11-14 Hannah Cadden who ran a new PB of 21:54, the 482nd fastest time ever run at Ginninderra. You can join Hannah on the fastest 500 list if you beat 22:03. If you beat 28: 04 you are better than average and under 50 minutes beats walking any time.

Congratulations Greg Lloyd on achieving 50 runs. Five people did their penultimate 50s. The 38 first-timers included ACT Vets Athletics Club member, Nick Blackaby, (Customs Run organiser for 20 years) who is recovering from a stroke.

Run Director Brad Hetharia passed on Rob de Castella’s invitation to run a half-marathon Sunday 25 Jan 14. Where: Reconciliation Place, Lake Burley Griffin foreshore. When: Rachel Baker’s story at 6:15 a.m. before 6:30 a.m. start. Free, however, a tax deductible donation to Rachel’s Tokyo marathon expenses is welcome.
