Since participating in our launch event nearly seven years ago, she’s run 250 parkruns, volunteered 102 times, and visited 48 different parkrun locations in six different states, and parkrun has enabled her to achieve things she never thought possible – from running marathons to public speaking.

Pacers

Saturday 8 September is our next pacer week, so let us know if you’d like to request a pacer for a specific time, or if you’d like to be a pacer. We’ve got a few arranged already!

It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are – a pacer could be your key to a new PB.

Juniors

There was something special going on with the juniors today – 5 new PBs! Well done to Oliver C, Josh L, Matthew McG (2nd week in a row), Billy H and Paul M.

Welcome to our junior first timers: Gigi B, Malia K and Blake 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.

Visually impaired athletes and guides

To connect with the VI team join the Achilles Brisbane - athletes & 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.

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 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.
