Visually impaired athletes and guides

As we mentioned above, Anja completed her 100th parkrun milestone while guiding Henry today.

Here’s what she had to say to Henry and the VI groupon reaching this milestone:
parkrun hasn't changed my life as it did for so many others as I always been the sporty type, but guiding opened a whole new running chapter for me so thank you for running with me today.”

To connect with Anja, Birgit and the VI team join the Vision Impaireds and Guides connect facebook group. Each Wednesday, the call goes out to match VI athletes with guides for the following Saturday.

27908169_1721132644617691_324392949797433446_o

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 tail walker crosses the line.

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

Please make sure you arrive early if you’re a first timer, or haven’t run at New Farm parkrun before. Our first timer’s briefing starts at 6.45am each week. Our usual main briefing is at 6.50am before we head down to the start line.

Visually impaired athletes and guides

To connect with Birgit and the VI team join the Vision Impaireds and Guides connect facebook group. Each Wednesday, the call goes out to match VI athletes with guides for the following Saturday.

We’d love to see more visually impaired people and guide dogs join us.

Juniors

Well done to all the juniors who scored PBs: Jemma L, Alyssa P, Hayden L and Preston P (all completing their 2nd parkrun ever).

Welcome to our junior first timers: Holly G, Olivia G and Hunter R. 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 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 tail walker crosses the line.

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