Aplins Weir #71

Event #71 was a very busy Saturday morning, with many of our friends and neighbours from Riverway parkrun visiting to swell our ranks.  While it's always sad to miss your regular parkrun, we're all very happy we got to see your smiling faces this morning.  177 participants graced us with their presence this morning, increasing last week's number by over 100.

44 of our participants had their first time at Aplins Weir, and 21 people managed to record personal bests despite the fact that the temperature continues to rise week to week.  We look forward to seeing who can rise to the challenge and keep setting them as we head in to summer.

While the temperature does continue to rise, it is important to keep hydrated as well. We are aware that the drinking fountain near the finish line is out of order, so please remember to bring a water bottle.  If you do forget, there is a working drink tap outside the dog parks near the halfway point.

Finally, a big congratulations must go to two of our volunteer stalwarts.  Deb, one of our Event Directors, officially reached her 50 parkruns, meaning she gets to join the red shirt club, and Bob, one of our regular volunteers, reached 25 volunteers while barcode scanning this morning.  Thank you both for all your help over the last 71 parkruns at Aplins.

A big thankyou to all our volunteers, as we cannot run the event without you all.
