22 November – parkrun #135

We applauded Peter Evans and Fran Freeman on achieving their 50th run and celebrated the visit of our special visitors, Jess and Russ Jefferys, old friends of parkrun Gindy; the couple we have to thank for bringing parkrun to Canberra.  Most of the 169 runners stuck around in the dappled sunshine after finishing and some for a further two hours at the Birrigai!   Well done to our five first timers, we hope to see you again soon. Great work to our 24 PBers - especially in the warm conditions!

Thank you to our volunteers: Debbie O’Donoghue, Graham Burke, Sally and Gregor Sutherland, Kristie Broadhead, Lara-Kym Lever, Leanne Maree Sutherland, Paul Hoskins and Robert Solomon. If you haven't volunteered lately, please come and help out one weekend. As you know, parkrun is made possible by our volunteers and regular runners are asked to volunteer three times a year.

Showing just how relevant the age grade scores can be to families, Oliver Mill’s age grade differed from Anita Scherrer’s (his mum) by only 0.3 %.   Amanda Kwong, Will B, and Tracey Grealy ran their penultimate 50s qualifying run. We look forward to celebrating their 50th next week!   JM10 Andrew Knight ran exactly the course average of 27:54 -excellent work and better is to come, no doubt.

Australia has now 100 parkun events, with more on the way. Silas Moss gearing up for the launch for parkrun Stockton on 13 December 14: www.facebook.com.au/stocktonparkrun.  The option of taking a ferry ride across Newcastle harbour to the start sounds fabulous.   Well done to all the parkrunners in “Run for your Lifeline”  opening the Majura parkway on Sunday; there were over 20 of us that we counted. It was hot and hard, but you did it.  Remember asking “R U OK?” could save a life and if you need help, Lifeline is only a phone call away on 13 11 14.

Ginninderra parkrun #132, 1 November 2014

Run Director, Brad Hetharia joked about the favourite fruit of a vampire: neck-tarine and its favorite icecream: vein-illa. Thanks to everyone who walked, ran, volunteered and dressed up for some Halloween fun.  133 runners received a “PB stays at” result.   To the 14 first-timers among the 186 runners: Congratulations “You’re a parkrunner now!”

Check out scary facebook page for a baby mummy, a furious pirate, Count Dracula, frocked-up witches, ghosts, a blue tiger on a bike, skeletons, a bunny (?), male and female Caligulas, a gladiator, a grumpy pumpkin in a hat, zombies, and the tiny-est pumpkin lantern in the world, etc.  Judged best dressed was ...   ...  .

Amongst the pram-pushers, well done to fourth-placed female, Susie Sprague who did  24:18.  You could try handicapping the pram Susie.  Twenty-something Christopher Moore and Rory Tarnow-Maudi dead-heated in 39:51 like it was the Victoria Derby.  Michael Leahey and Trevor Jacobs, both from ACT Vets Club, topped the age grade.  Imogen Cooper JW10 is sprinting towards the 50 shirt with her second new PB in a row.
