Run report courtesy of Peter Ralston.

Shortly after Sally Pearson had raced to 100 metre hurdles gold in Glasgow, 107 parkrunners cleared off from the Gindy start line in sunshine and one degree of frost. It might have been just another day at the office for Sally P. but here it was nothing like it.

The Cooper family’s love of parkrun brought them from Goulburn for the 34th time. Andy Moon reached his 50th . Congratulations Andy. First-timer Dennis Ling topped the age grade with a 79.44 % score and leaped into second place in VM60-64 performances. One of our seven juniors running today, Elizabeth Henderson, placed second- female, placed second in the age grade, and ran a new PB 4:25 better than last year.

Chris Mill did a 7 minute PB, after Swiss altitude training. Tegan Roberts repeated her feat of running new PBs at only events that are odd-numbered, for the eleventh consecutive week. Volunteers were magnificent (Michael Aisbitt, Claire McGreevy, Fliss Henss, Barry Lumsden, Nicole Lisle, Laura Goward, Robert Solomon, Ellie Sobey and Brad Hetharia). Encouragement was universal.

There were some amazing PBs from 23 runners, who carved up the course! The PBs could have been attributed to the support received from one of Gindy's favourite junior runners and volunteer, Caitlin Bowe.

Ginninderra parkrun #117 19th July 2014

Run report courtesy of Peter Ralston.

Tourists from Cairns and Sydney noticed the frozen bubbler and the zero degrees. 124 hearties who scorned to live ‘sans parkrun’ had the best start you can have to any Saturday. How awesome were our volunteers! On barcode scanning : Kay Blemings, [applause] who is recovering from ankle surgery. On run directing and time keeping: Brad Hetharia, Ellie Sobey and Thiet Huynh. Photographic genius: Laura Purcell. Marshalls : Emily Gearside and James Minto. And handing you your finish tokens : legendary Roger Abbott.

Congratulations to Victoria Roberts and Mark Lound on achieving your 50th runs. Congratulations also to Jess Jefferys, Run Director at New Farm. Jess has volunteered 55 times, done 23 runs at Ginninderra, and 27 runs at 22 other events. A 50 shirt presented by Russ is the least you deserve Jess!

21 new PBs included a 2 minute PB to Jacqui Warden. Second-placed Lachlan Dow was one of 14 first timers. Lachlan has World Orienteering Championships 2014 form and could be ramping up to a new PB now he has memorised the Gindy course.

Safety reminders. Respect any black ice and be courteous to other users of the park. Keep left on the paths and road at all times.
