A cold and blustery southerly tested our 13 volunteers and the 107 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 9 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part.
Zahleigh completed his tenth parkrun and Glenn his one-hundredth. They were almost literally blown away receiving their milestone certificates.
Matt has run 47 times at Lakeview (and volunteered 8 times). He needed a PB to be first over the line for the first time.
Part of the fun of parkrun is challenging yourself and this week Michelle ran her fourth consecutive PB.
The finish line is in sight and the smile says it all.
