Run Report #290 – 22nd February 2020



Run Directors Report

  Congratulations to all 247 parkrunners who completed event #290 this morning. Special thanks as always to our vollies for skipping their run and helping out instead; we are very lucky to never have a shortage of people willing to step on up and help at Capalaba.   First finisher today was Sam Doyle in an awesome PB time of 19:43! First female home today was Victoria Sugden, in an equally awesome time of 20:44. Well done to the both of you!

Thanks as usual to local cafes Wicked Brew and Costas for the discounts on a Saturday, always a highlight of the morning. Thanks also to our resident Federal Member Andrew Laming, for supporting our bid for a new parkrun camera, which we were lucky enough to receive recently.

Results and photos have now been posted, I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend; look forward to seeing you again next Sat for more frolicking fun in the park.
Cheers, Amy - ED

We now have a Strava Capalaba parkrun group, just click on the link here to join.


Children at parkrun:

All children under 11 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Guardians must ensure that children place themselves appropriately so as to prevent a situation where they are being repeatedly overtaken at the start. This is to ensure the safety of your child. This is NOT negotiable and any child finishing without a parent or guardian will have their time removed from the results.

If you have a speedy child and can’t keep up, then see the Run Director and they can put a call out for someone to run with them. Alternatively, the child needs to run slower and stay with the parent. The same applies for a parent who runs faster than their child.


Barcode reminder:

Printed barcodes are used at all our events to record your result. Please click here to collect and print your barcode. No barcode = No result = No exceptions. #dfyb (don't forget your barcode). Not registered with parkrun? Click here to register.
