Ginninderra parkrun – Event number 225 – 20th August 2016

The chilly weather did not deter our field of 133 dedicated athletes this morning - including 13 first timers! Welcome! Also many thanks to our volunteers this morning- it's harder in the cold and we appreciate it.

24 of our runners even managed PBs today - that's a whopping 18% of the field. Well done to everyone - especially our PBers. Two PBs stand out from the rest- Tiffany Roweth, who not only scored a PB, but also completed her 50th run - and Oliver Wilson, who on return to parkrun after a 12 month hiatus, managed a 9 min plus PB. Looks like the swimming training has been paying off!

One of our volunteer marshals, Tony, was also thinking of another running event underway. His son is competing in the Canberra 100 km even this weekend. All the best for Tony's son from Gindy parkrun.

The field was led by our very own London Olympic marathon runner - Martin Dent, also holder of the coveted course record for Ginninderra.
