A barely double degree morning with strong winds greeted our parkrunners. Steven Bament celebrated his 50th parkrun, whilst junior parkrunner, Finn Gunton, checked off his 10th event finish. Congratulations both, a great effort all round. Also this week, whilst it's not an official milestone, Kat Galloway made her 100th appearance at Christies Beach this morning. Kat has always brought a huge smile with her at the Espy and has contributed by volunteering at previous parkrun events. Thanks Kat, we greatly appreciate your generosity and efforts.
Glenn Taylor, Area Manager for our national sponsors The Athlete's Foot, came down to the Espy today with a selection of Mizuno footwear for parkrunners to try on as they did completed the event. The 'Run Before You Buy' opportunity is a great way to showcase some of the amazing technology that goes into the making of competitive footwear and a chance for some discount vouchers for use in The Athlete's Foot stores. An ongoing thank to The Athlete's Foot and their teams for their contribution and commitment to parkrun Australia.
A big thank you to all our volunteers this morning, led by local sponsor Katrine Hildyard MP, ensuring another great event for the local community and those travelling from further afield.
This week 146 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 4 were first timers and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.
