It was our 30th parkrun on Saturday 20th August and we had a good return to numbers! We imagine summer will see another boost, and with 18 First Timers yesterday, we are pretty excited! Considering we had no one from outside of the Region Of Runners (The Hunter), our crowd of 128 Finishers created a great spirit on the day!
We did lose one token, so if you are the Finisher number 9 (see Facebook), please return the token! You are still welcome back!
Congratulations to Amity Blatch who achieved her 10th parkrun yesterday!
Our roster for the coming weeks is looking pretty healthy, but please feel free to check out our roster and see if there is a role you can fill here.
We also have our Personal Better Day, where if you haven’t been to a parkrun, or been missing for a while, we encourage you to come along! If you have friends or family who would like to see come along, the 3rd September would be a great day!
And finally, coming up we have our next Top Twenty Finishers Day, where if you are a male or female who have finished in the top 20, we would love you to volunteer on Saturday 24th September.
Thank you to all our volunteers today:
