Thanks this week to our great volunteers:

This week we had perfect weather, and celebrated Junior parkrunner April BARLOW's 10th run, and
Brenda Joyce HOCKMAN's 50th run. The warm weather suited many, with 24 our runners achieving PBs - well done to all of you! Even the lure of the coast on a long weekend couldn't keep the crowds away, with 169 of our dedicated runners this week - even 22 first timers joined us.
It's getting so busy, we're going to try out a slightly different course (our ACT Government approved "B" course) to see if it makes the start less crowded. Come and help us test it out this weekend!
