Albury Wodonga parkrun
Event number 98
30th January 2016
****NEW COURSE RECORD****
A new course record was set with 320 parkrunners taking place in event #98. We only set the last record earlier this month so it is fantastic to see our numbers continue to grow.
A great crowd with lots of first timers and some visitors also. We even had some international parkrunners from England who are travelling Australia and incorporating some parkrun tourism. They are hoping to get five parkruns in during their stay!
We are also fast approaching our 100th event and our second birthday will be here before too long.
As always a big thank you to the volunteers who do a great job each week, particularly with the increase in runners. We have had some extra help over this busy period with sorting tokens and assisting at the finish line. So please check the roster online or at the scanning desk for any vacant spots.
