Damp but dry conditions greeted the 61 parkrunners this morning at Altona Beach parkrun. Today we welcomed 1 new parkrunner to the ever growing number of Altona Beach parkrunners. If you were one of the 11 parkrunners who achieved a new PB a massive well done.
If it weren't for the wonderful volunteers listed below, Altona Beach parkrun # 59 would not have happened:
Kay COLLINS (Run Director) • Carmen SALIBA • Dave COLLINS • Glenn ROWLANDS • Kerrie RISK • Lisa CUNNINGHAM • Rene DUMESNY • Sophie TAN • Toby COLLINS
Thank you for your time and contribution to Altona Beach parkrun - we really appreciate it!
We all love to run parkrun but remember that Altona Beach parkrun can only continue if we have enough volunteers. We ask that each parkrunner volunteers 3-4 times a year. Please see our Future Roster at thislink and contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred date and position. Thank you in advance.
Damian Paynter one of our run directors at Altona Beach who last week clocked up his 50th parkrun.
Printed barcodes are used at all our events to record your result. Remember: No barcode = No result
Finish line and finish tokens,
We remind parkrunners to please cross the finish line only once – please don’t come through twice as it can cause problems with the results later. Please also be reminded that your finish token must be handed back to our volunteers after it has been scanned. Please do not take it home as a souvenir!
Safety on the course,
Children under the age of 11 must be accompanied at all times by a parent, guardian, or other designated adult of the parent’s choice. It must also be ensured that children place themselves appropriately at the start so as to prevent a situation where they are being repeatedly overtaken. This is to ensure the safety of your child.
The path can get congested with runners, walkers, and cyclists, so please be mindful of other path users and keep to the left. Dogs should be kept on a short lead.
With the weather now getting warmer, we encourage all parkrunners to bring water and keep well-hydrated. Please also remember that snakes love the warmer weather so please be aware of the potential for them to be out and about.
Altona Beach parkrun would not be possible or FREE without the generous support from our sponsors, Stockland, Suncorp Bank, Hobsons Bay City Council, and Vic Health – thank you for your contribution to Altona Beach parkrun and ensuring the success of our event.
Milestone Club T-shirts
parkrunners are able to order milestone t-shirts when they have completed 10 (Juniors only), 50, 100, 250, and 500 parkruns.
For those working towards a milestone, your profile page will show how many events you’ve completed and how many more you need to complete before you reach the next milestone.
If you are a parkrunner due a milestone, check your profile (accessible through the link in your weekly newsletter email or results email) for a message informing you that you are now entitled to claim your milestone t-shirt. A personalised link will then take you to the appropriate page on parkrun's Wiggle-powered online store where you'll be able to order your t-shirt(s).
