What a great day for a run or walk. This week 245 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 16 were first timers and 26 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 15 different clubs took part.

Some awesome milestones were achieved today with Wendy UPTON claiming a shy 100th and Brendan MCAULIFFE stating in bold and delicious cake 150! Congratulations to you both.

Please forgive a personal note to start this week’s report … THANK YOU Canning River parkrun community, two years on your Event Team has been just amazing and I can’t think of a better way to slink off into “retirement” than sharing RD duties with my son! An extra special thank you to my fellow Event Team members, past a present, my true love of parkrun has been nurtured by volunteering along-side you all, ❤️MK

Sensational conditions this morning (admittedly with a little chill in the air!) welcomed participants to Canning River parkrun Event #276. Many thanks to our very expert crew of vollies, namely Douglas B, Kiara & Michelle B, Ian C, Mason, Jeff & Kaylee C, Ramesh D, Russell F, Cliff H, Mark & Oliver K, Julie & Kimberleigh K, Jan M, and Anne & Ella Y (wow, we love seeing families vollie together!!).

Even #271 – 21 July 2018

What did you all think of the new parking arrangement? The overall feedback has been extremely positive and, as such, we will continue the trial for the next few weeks. If you would be interested in helping out, then please comment below, as we would like to train some parking Marshals in August. Parking Marshals still get to run after completing their parking duties - however they start their run a few minutes late so chances of getting a PB on that day will be slim ;)

The weather gods were very kind to us this morning and the promised deluge was only a light sprinkle. Congratulations to Charlotte G who was celebrating her 50th run today and anyone else who was celebrating a sneaky milestone!

This week 205 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 9 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 18 AWESOME volunteers:

Andrew PENGELLY • Carolyn FAWCETT • Robert FAWCETT • Mark RALEIGH • Mark JOSS • Annette BRYANT • Mark KERR • Lisa IP • David ROSE • Carollyn PEARS • Linda NIBLOCK • Jason GIELINGH • William WILLIAMS • Sarah JAMES • Bronwyn MILKINS • Monika CAMERON • Kimberleigh KING • Tegan CRAKE

5th Anniversary Pyjama Event and June Pacer Day

We are FIVE on June 2nd and to give you more time on a Saturday morning we thought we'd wear our PYJAMAS! Don your best flannels and fluffiest dressing gown, bring some tasty treats (please bring tasty treats!!) and come on down to help high-5 an amazing 5 years for our wonderful community.

It is also pacer day at Canning River, the day where some of our parkrun family pop on a bright orange vest and encourage and support other participants to achieve personal best (PB) times by trying to run as close to the time printed on their vest as possible. Such a rewarding thing do to, so let us know if you'd like to wear a pacer vest over your PJs and we'll set it aside for you.

See our Facebook event for details, we can't wait to see you there!

parkrun Day Tomorrow

It's parkrun day tomorrow and we are very pleased to announce that the vollie roster is full for the next three parkruns!  Thanks to everyone who put their name down to volunteer.

Please make sure that you arrive early tomorrow so that you have time to park. While parking, please drive on the grass and not on the bike path. (Conversely when you are walking to the start line, please use the path and leave the grass for the cars.) Also give the parking attendants a big thank you because they will be working hard to get the cars through the gate as smoothly as possible.

See you in the morning!
