Event #49 – April 18, 2015

Congratulations to the 195 parkrunners who turned out this week - we had a huge 51 PB's - perhaps thanks to the wonderful pacers we had out on the course on Saturday!

First across the line was young Izak DENTON in a staggeringly fast time of 18:14 - this is a particularly fine achievement by any standards but made all the more impressive when you see that Izak is in the 11-14 age category. First female across this line this morning was Isabeau WILLIAMS in a lightening fast 19:53.

SHOUT OUT - Volunteers Needed - we have plenty of opportunities for volunteers in the coming weeks ... are you able to help ?

Anzac Day
Don't forget that Stones Corner parkrun (like all other parkruns) will not be running on the 25 April 2015 - we will commemorate our past and present servicemen and servicewomen on this day !

1st Anniversary Reminder - BLUE Themed
Stones Corner parkrun will celebrate turning one on Saturday 2nd of May 2015 - put it in your diaries as a NOT TO MISS parkrun celebration ... we hope you have your BLUE outfit for the day ready !!!

Businesses

BentLogic

This is the most convenient way to carry your parkrun Athlete ID barcode - on a durable plastic key tag. No more soggy paper barcode! Attach it to your car keys, shoelace, necklace, wristband or zip and you won't need to worry about forgetting it.
Simply visit the BentLogic website to order. The cost is $6 AUD (including postage) and best of all, $2 from each key tag will be donated back to parkrun.

Cafe Elvira

Cafe Elvira offer all parkrunners free hot drinks each week on display of their barcode. All parkrunners get free basic coffee and tea, and only $2.50 for hot chocolate and chai latte (volunteers get all hot drinks free). They're open from 6-1 and can be found on the same side of the road as the library/toilets and about 300m up the road. There's always a few of us up there after the run so come say hi.
