Aplins Weir #74

Another Spring parkrun done and dusted!  Between the clouds, the breeze, and the brief drizzle, all our participants got to enjoy a serene 24 degree parkrun.  Our locals must have sensed it, because 101 people came out to enjoy the cool conditions.

Today was also a good reminder to take advantage of the cool spells while we've got them. Tony from Townsville Road Runners was in fine form and set a new PB at 16:33, with 9 other people following suit to claim PB's as well.  We also had 8 first timers come down, and we hope that you all keep visiting us at Aplins Weir to start your weekend with us.

Remember, we will be running a special Christmas day parkrun at Aplins Weir.  So, if you have no family in Townsville, or you want to sneak in a parkrun before the traditional Christmas feast, or if you're just really desperate to reach the 50/100/250 club, pencil us in for the 25th of December.

As always, our well oiled machine would turn into a rusty scrapheap without our volunteers.  This week's volunteers who have our utmost thanks are as follows:

Felicity LEON • Sarah-Jaye WESTON • Marianne BROWN • Debra THOROGOOD • Paul MILLERS • Vaughan BRUCE • Mikel BRECKENRIDGE • Julia HAIG
