Wynnum #200

Well done to the 271 who took part in Wynnum parkrun #200 this morning. Conditions were good and we saw 39 new PB's set. We also welcomed 26 first timers today - hope you enjoyed the beautiful course. Congratulations to our first male finisher Matthew Boevink in a time of 17:40 and our first female finisher Kylie Eastham in 21:46. We also had two parkrunners join the 100 club today - congratulations to Trish Wood and Liz Grolimund.
Thank you to all our volunteers for making today possible.
We are fast approaching Wynnum's 4th Birthday in a months time so keep an eye out for updates as we approach this milestone.
One last reminder - we did have a lot of unknown finishers today in the results so if you could register as a parkrunner and bring a printed copy of your barcode it will help things run smoothly.
Hope everyone has a great week and we look forward to seeing you all again next Saturday.

For those not running but volunteering today it was a bit chilly in the wind so extra thanks go to... Jasmin BAINS, Tony BAISDEN, Mary BLOWERS, Roisin BURRELL, Alan BURRELL, Carli JONES, Verne LOWSON, Victoria MCDONALD, Sara PHILLIPS, Trish RUSSELL, Sharon SALU, John SCHOLES, Jodi STEPHENSON, Sandra THOMAS, Lyzah THOMAS. Roisin did a great job in signing up for volunteers for next week, but if you want to help for future weeks please take a look at the online roster and send us an email or FB post if you can help - we ask regular runners to volunteer at least 3 times a year so we can run a smooth and safe free event each week - thank you,|
Results emails should be with you shortly and the photos will be uploaded later this morning.

Roisin and I have handed the RD 'baton' onto Tracy and Lee to look after you for the next 2 weeks - so take care, have a good weekend :)

Congratulations to the 286 finishers at a glorious sunny Wynnum parkrun. Our pacers today did an excellent job helping 50 people get to new PBs. Our first two placed male finishers (Werner and Sam) and first female Keri were also very close to their PBs too. If you were helped by a pacer today please add a post below to thank them! All the results are out and you should have your results emails by now - as always if you do not see your time or you think it is wrong then please get in touch and we will follow it up. The full list of this week's awesome volunteers today were... Matt ARCHER, Tony BAISDEN, Kenneth BANFIELD, Geraldine (Ged) BANFIELD, Eleanore BEILBY, Julie BLACK, Roisin BURRELL, Alan BURRELL, Noah CARTER, James HOLLANBY, Verne LOWSON, Brad LYE, Kurt MCDONALD, Victoria MCDONALD, Mark MUSK, Anne NUTTALL, Cullen PORTHILL, Lara RADIK, Trish RUSSELL, Tom SKORZEWSKI, Laura SKORZEWSKI, Sandra SORENSEN, Leeann STEWART, Jeremy WALKER

Thanks to all those who added their names to our roster today. Don't forget you can email in or PM us on facebook if you want to help us out. We rely on regular parkrunners volunteering at least 3 times a year so if you have not done that yet please consider volunteering next week or beyond. All the jobs are easy but all are important to help us bring you a free weekly 5km timed run each week :)

We were pleased to welcome to Wynnum parkrun tourists from all over the world, furthest afield today were from Ireland and England, and closer to home were a group from Augustine Heights and other local courses in and around Australia. Your all very welcome and hope you enjoyed one of the best Bayside parkruns in Australia - it's also one of the flattest courses too ;)

It was great to have a visit from Vanessa of QLD Orthotics and Podiatry. If you did not get a chance to talk to her about any running injuries or problems then parkrunners can always book to see her for a free 15 min consult at her clinic in Manly. She also offers parkrunners discounts on various services so get in touch with her for full details.

We were also joined as usual by Ricky, with his Flinders coffee van. Ricky makes great coffee and other warm and cold drinks so dont forget to bring along some spare change each week!

Today we had some special milestone runs. Katherine and Kelly both finished 50 runs and Run Director Al Lowson finished 100 runs (and also 34 volunteer stints) - well done to you all.

Our moon-booted photographer Verne did a great job on the photos. Due to another commitment the photos will be uploaded later on today, but they will be worth waiting for :)
I was asked today for some details about the 'Longest Runs' on Sunday 7th August. I know lots of people are signed up for BNE Marathon on that day (and there is still a chance to enter with a 10% discount if you see my previous posts) but if you are not quite up to that you can run anything from 1 to 7 of the local 5km courses starting at either Augustine Heights or Yarrabilba and finishing at Cleveland. They are NOT official parkruns, they are NOT timed, and they will not count to your parkrun points or stats but they are a great chance to run with and chat to other local parkrunners over some great free local courses. For details see map here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Pm_nQK8CUtQf13hbL9-cTvHN56Q&usp=sharing or look at the facebook event https://www.facebook.com/events/601464580015457/?active_tab=posts

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you all same place, same time next week.

Best wishes, Alan & Roisin - Event Directors
