Did someone say fog?

The fog was thicker than pea soup this morning, which made it eerily beautiful across the lake, and very cold for those standing around (Thanks volunteers!)

Today 103 people completed our course, of which 3 were first timers, and 10 recorded new personal bests.

A warm welcome to Ethan Winterton*, Kristian Admiraal and Amy Brown who completed their first parkrun with us this morning. Hope you enjoyed it and we hope to see you back next week.

An equally warm welcome to Chong Chee Goh and Mun Yee Goh who ran at Berwick Springs for the first time. Regulars at Frog Hollow, we are glad to see you both at our event!

David Cunningham is no stranger to the Berwick Springs parkrun community, and as he pointed out to me today, it has taken 7 years to complete his 100th parkrun. An advocate for cardiac health, he is a member of the Cardiac Athletes and brought the importance of knowing CPR to our event in an all too real situation… Well done David. It’s taken a while, but you have earned that Black T-Shirt!

Thank you so much for helping out this morning. It is very much appreciated by everyone. Unfortunately we were unable to fill two roles this morning, so there are no photos this week.

Next week we are still looking for 2 time keepers, 2 barcode scanners and a photographer.

These roles require no experience and all you need to bring is your phone. The RD will assist you on the day. If you have not volunteered for a while and you would be interested in helping out, click on the link below to find out how you can join our amazing volunteer team.

Volunteering is such a rewarding experience.
