Ginninderra parkrun Event number 202 – 12th March 2016

Balloon ahoy! was the call from the Gininderra lumps (or are they bumps, certainly our course has no hills). The balloon almost landing on the path was the topic of conversation around the finish chute from first timers to pram riders.

20 unknown runners didn't have their run count towards their total runs. One forgotten barcode I can understand, but 20 seems a tragedy. Not so Shane Hogan who clocked up his 250th parkrun kilometre/50th parkrun. Well done Shane and thanks for bringing the family along to celebrate your fabulous milestone.

Next week could be another week for a milestone, if the lady who called out "and that's 99!" as she crossed the finish line joins us again.
