Event number 47
31st May 2014
It was the last day of Autumn,
At the Central park in Aveley,
parkrunners made their way in,
From Perth, Brisbane and Kalgoorlie.
As the run director arrived, he couldn’t believe his eyes,
A truck parked on the course, the workers were off eating pies,
The course was changed, with a fancy loop on the end,
Will me make 5k, with this extra amend?
So parkrun continued, a truck won’t stop us!
32PB’s were to be had, that seemed a bit suss,
But we checked the garmins, the runkeepers and GPS,
5001 meters! You guys are the BEST!
