Juniors

Well done to all the juniors who scored PBs: Mia G, Sophie T, Rory W and Jayden B-B.

Parents, please remember our Under 11 rule which states all children aged 10 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times while running.

Also a reminder that scooters and bicycles are not permitted at parkrun, due to the safety risks to both children and parkrunners.

Defibrillator

Please take some time to watch  this video, as we’d like everyone to know where our defibrillator is kept and the basics of its use.

If you’d like more detailed information, check out this longer video or read the full users manual. You should also remind yourself of CPR.

The defib is stored in the blue plastic gear box between parkruns, and moved to the finish line for easy access once the run has started each week. It will stay there until the tailrunner crosses the line.

You can still donate to help all our Australian parkrun events get their own defibrillators. Donations are tax deductible.

We had a very ‘fruitful’ morning thanks to our wonderful marshal bananas from the New Farm outta-the-park runners.

The showers stayed away for 214 eager parkrunners who ran our course B again due to the maintenance work this morning. Welcome to the visitors who joined us today, especially those from Adelaide and Wynnum.

Congratulations to today’s milestone parkrunners: James Barr (50) and Vicki Thompson (100). Hap completed his 50th volunteer time too.

If you received a token between 80 and 105 and you think your time is significantly out, please PM or email us and we will try and fix it (we had a token mix-up).

Stay tuned and we’ll post mid-week about whether we’ll be running our usual course or course B next week.

New Farm parkrun will go ahead on 4 November with a modified course

Great news!

We have measured and confirmed a modified course for the next 2-3 weeks while the maintenance work on the Catalina Riverwalk is completed. So we can parkrun at New Farm this Saturday!

Please check out the map (approximate indication of the course). It’s out-and-back (long) and out and back (short) in the same direction as our usual parkrun course.

 

 

Christmas Day 2017 and New Year’s Day 2018 parkruns

There are only two days of the year when parkruns are able to be held on days that are not Saturdays - Christmas Day (Monday 25 December) and New Year’s Day (Monday 1 January) this time.

This holiday season, we’re planning to hold a New Year’s Day parkrun at 7am, but we’ll need to fill the volunteer roster to make sure we can go ahead.

To volunteer, please email us with your name or athlete ID, preferred date and task. Groups of friends, first-timers and juniors are always welcome!

Even better, you may be able to combine it with another parkrun to “do the double” – that’s two parkruns in one day.

Check out the list of events on these two days at www.parkrun.com.au/christmas-compendium/. Keep an eye here as the list will be updated as events decide and get the landowners’ permission to parkrun.

In Brisbane, following the tradition of the past few years, South Bank parkrun will running on Christmas Day.

Stay tuned to our facebook page for more info about our Christmas celebrations at parkrun on Saturday 23 December 2017.
