Wynnum parkrun cancelled this morning – 16 Nov

Our Run Director James had to cancel the parkrun this morning due to severe weather that hit the bay just before we were due to start. There was a water spout and lightning.

It is always a tough call to cancel an event, we all love to run, but everyone's safety is paramount and our policy is to cancel for strong wind or lightning and both of these turned up at the wrong time today - so to cancel was the only decision we could take.

I understood some people choose to run as a 'freedom' run and if you did so then please log your times using the link in the email you get (results or newsletter).

Weather permitting we will be back next week :)

 

PS A big thank you to James and our Volunteers today who had everything ready to go and had to pack up when it was cancelled

 

Wynnum parkrun 35

Sunrise over Moreton Bay

Congratulations to everyone who took part in this morning’s run. Today’s event was made possible by our fabulous volunteers: Alison Price, Emma Henderson, Arna Chauncey, Peter Cumming, Nicole Lutze, Alison O’Neill, Michelle Shiels, Susie Fox, John Carter, Trent Collett & Hennie Coetzer – thank you all for your time and efforts!

Special mention also goes to Belinda Clarke for giving our ‘1st timers’ brief this morning, Roisin Burrell for holding the fort due the Run like a Jett challenge and Sean Kelly for going to so much effort to provide us with fantastic finishers photos and Hennie for the shots from Darling Point. All the photos are here FB Photo Album. We were also treated to the breakfast BBQ by Jetts and Café 2 U were also there with their gorgeous coffees- perfect on a chilly morning!

What a finish...

We had 206 runners this morning with Werner Botha crossing the line first with a time of 16:23 and Trish Russell was our first female finisher with a new PB at 19:34, congratulations!

We would also like to wish Aman Gupta a Happy Birthday! He started his birthday celebrations by joining us this morning and running in a new age category for the 1st time! (I won’t say which one) 

Trent continued on after our normal run to complete an extra 4 laps of the course, covering a total of 25km this morning. Fantastic effort and mental endurance to maintain a storming pace over that distance, and on a repetitive circuit! Trent was joined during the first 500m of his third 'lap' by 3 parkrunners who "Ran Like a Jett" to keep up. Here is a photo or Arna, Aman, Ellie and Trent....

Run like a Jett

Well done to everyone and congratulations if you managed a new PB, enjoy the rest of your weekend and we’ll see you next week!
Ellie xx

Wynnum parkrun 30

A beautiful bayside sunrise at 6am greeted a small  group of volunteers and 'keen' parkrunners who wanted to 'warm up' before the main event - well actually it was a 5km lap of the course!

Dawn at Wynnum parkrun

We started our Run Brief this morning with a short tribute and moments silence to remember Joe Kelly the triathlete at the Twilight Running festival 2 weeks ago who was fatally injured in the dreadful storm which struck the Half Marathon event. We hope parkrun will be able to join up with Joe's athletic club for a fundraiser, for more details keep a look out in the parkrun Australia weekly newsletter .

After the usual run brief from RD Hennie another record attendance set off for a fantastic parkrun. Our first male finisher was Toby Somerville (second time finishing in first place) in 17:28, and first female was Bridget Taylor in 20:35 (and a PB by 12 seconds too)!

Full details follow...
