Congratulations to the 192 parkrunners who came along this morning to set PBs with our Pacers and celebrate parkpunner of the Month Stacey McInnes! Our grateful thanks to a great friend of Chermside parkrun Leanne Linard MP who joined us for a run and to present Stacey's award.
Congratulations as well to Julie Seol who has volunteered 25 times and junior parkrunner Veronica Huth who ran her 10th parkrun.
Thank you as always to our awesome volunteers who made the event run so smoothly. Thank you as well to Kath Gorrie of Boot Camps Australia Chermside for the warmup and LJ Hooker Chermside for the drinks.
A reminder that for the next few weeks we will be starting and finishing around the other side of Kidspace due to Council maintenance work on Kidspace. This is where we originally had the start/finish area when Chermside parkrun first started.
