#245 – What a week!

Ginninderra parkrun

Event number 245

14th January 2017

What a week for records! This week we celebrated a major collection of milestones from some of our most dedicated runners:

  • Junior Runner Lachlan McGilvray made the  50 club; and
  • Len Hogg made the 100 club!

If that wasn’t enough, James Minto completed his 150th run, and Peter Ralston completed his 200th – the most of any Gindy parkrunner to date!

Another record was created, with our course being closed due to fallen trees on course for the first time, after Friday night’s storm. But with the selfless assistance of Brendan Belcher who gave up his parkrun and the rest of his long run to scout out the alternative course and become a last minute marshal, 206 runners were able to still have a great morning!

Thanks to all of our volunteers this week: Brendan BELCHER  •  Debbie LOVETT  •  Graham BURKE  •  Gregor SUTHERLAND  •  Judy BURKE  •  Laura GOWARD  •  Louise MAGUIRE  •  Perlita POH  •  Robert BROWN  •  Sally SUTHERLAND  •  Zoe LOVETT

A little bit about James and Peter:

James Minto

-    120 of his 149 runs have been at Ginninderra

-    his first race here was in Event No. 2 on 5 May 2012 where his time was 24:59

-    since then, Jimbo has been placed First on 23 occasions

-    he also has done 7 PBs

-    current PB is 16”20 and his average time is 19:42

Peter Ralston

-  our first 200 runs member

-    164 of his 199 completed runs have been at Ginninderra with the others at 17 different venues, including in the UK

-    another old timer - his first run was in Event No. 9 on 23 June 2012 where his time was 26:55

-    has done 12 PBs

-    current PB is 22:06 and average time is 26:55
