Run Report - 21 April 2018
A belated run report for last week - the sixth event for Coombs, and again, beautiful Autumn weather for one of Canberra’s most picturesque parkrun courses.
This week, we welcomed 137 participants, and while course records remained unbroken - for the first time for several weeks! - 54 people recorded new personal bests. On a course which is as challenging as Coombs, this is a terrific achievement.
Brent Rebecca was the first male across the line in 18:41, followed by Jason Chalker in 19:22 and Mark Gregson in 19:55. Tina Tanfara was the fastest female, crossing the line in 21:33 - a fantastic result given Saturday was her second ever parkrun! - followed by Keira Doherty in 22:59 and Ann Staunton-Jugovic in 23 minutes.
Unfortunately, we can only provide you with a time and position if you’re registered with parkrun. If not, you’ll appear as an ‘Unknown’ in our weekly list of results - if you’re one of those, jump over to our registration page - registering is quick, easy and free.
Don’t forget the launch of Mount Ainslie parkrun this Saturday. While we’d still like to see a few of you at Coombs, we won’t hold it against you if you’re at Mount Ainslie just this once.
A huge thanks as always to this week’s volunteers: Craig ROBINSON, Bruce WIGHT, Tim GRAINGER, Mel SYKES-BRIDGE, Janette YEUNG, Kelly FINN, Deana CUMING, Lachlan FINN (Under 10), Robyn FINN (Under 10), Alistair BUCHANAN and Lorinda BUCHANAN
As with all parkruns, Coombs relies entirely on volunteers - so please consider joining us in the weeks to come. It’s fun, easy and doesn’t take more than a couple of hours. You can find details on our future roster, by leaving a comment on Facebook, or by sending us an email.
See you next Saturday!
