supergilrs

What a fabulous morning, and thank you to all the pyjama’ed superheroes who joined us this morning, especially the ones who brought food to share. We loved the party and the amazing costumes!

We had 471 parkrunners help us celebrate six years of parkrun at New Farm. 77 of them were first-timers (welcome!) and 39 PBs were claimed today.

We send our best wishes with Paul McMahon as he returns to the UK to live, and wish him many more happy English parkruns!

parkrunner of the month

Our parkrunner of the month for August is Elise Ridoutt. We’d like to recognise not only Elise, but the rest of her family too – Ian, Karen and Hudson.

Elise has been a regular volunteer while her family runs and has volunteered 32 times so far, but she’s also enjoyed park-walking and running with her family too. Thanks to her family for supporting her and for making parkrun a healthy habit for the whole family.

Elise receives a POTM key ring, a massage voucher from Body Leadership Australia and a $50 voucher from Barambah Organics. Well done, Elise!

This is the last time we’re are able to present prizes for POTM, so a big thank you to Ian and Jane from Barambah Organics and Paul and Ange Trevethan from Body Leadership Australia!

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.

21200909_1551054768292147_1804851050067771768_o

A very good morning at New Farm parkrun, with ideal running conditions and very good times for our lead runners.

A big thank you to all of our volunteers, you all did a great job this morning! From our youngest volunteer Jack Whittam, to our entertaining time keeper Sophie who did a great job after a bit of a big night out lol! Thank you everyone, very much appreciated! Please consider volunteering, it is a great way to get to know your like-minded parkrunners and to be part of the New Farm parkrun team.

Next week is our last pacer day for 2017. Let us know if you would like to be a pace runner.

Just a reminder, if you come through the finish line, please take a token. If you do not want your time scanned that is fine, but please still take a token and return it to the registration table. It saves confusion.

Happy Father’s Day to all our dads this weekend. Today was Warrior parkrun; we hope all the dads, brothers and uncles all felt welcomed at parkrun this morning. We also hope our visitors today enjoyed parkrun. So cool to have visitors from the UK and Darwin!

Don’t forget our 6th anniversary on the 23rd September and it is themed SUPERHEROES IN PYJAMAS!!! This should make our birthday very interesting, and entertaining. Please get involved, the more the merrier!

Congratulations to today’s milestone runners: Katrina Webster (100), Marlon Whitely (50), Marissa Powell (50) and Alicia Skinner with a new PB (50).

Our photos can be viewed in our facebook album.

It was lovely to see so many juniors out enjoying the first parkrun of spring today.

Well done to all the juniors who scored PBs: Sienna S, Seojoon M, Seobin M and Fergus McM.

Welcome to our junior first timers: Henry McM, Hayden B, Bailey P, Joshua B, Chloe P, Chelsea B and Amelia B. We hope to see you again soon.

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 instruction manual. You could 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.
