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.
