Aplins Weir #73

Event #73 saw just enough wind to hold off our higher temperatures for most of the morning. 66 parkrunners, parkjoggers, and parkwalkers made it to the weir this morning for their weekly dose of activity and socialising along our beautiful Ross River.

13.6% of our participants managed to achieve a personal best!  That's 9 people out of our contingent of 66.  As well as that, we again had 6 first timers, and thank you to our parkrun tourist from Brisbane for visiting Aplins Weir for their first Townsville parkrun.

At Aplins Weir we always value all our volunteers, but a special thanks must go to Bob our timekeeper, who this morning reached 27 volunteers and volunteered for his fourth consecutive week in a row.

Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event possible:

Timothy MCKEAN • Lee NOLAN • William ROBERTS • Debra THOROGOOD • Robert VIGOR • Paul MILLERS • Sandy RENDELL • Krissy REGAN
