Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #307

lillydale lake parkrun
Wow what a way to start your day. A record attendance for Lillydale Lake parkrun of 359 runners made the leap out of bed for our first ever Leap Day parkrun. This weeks volunteer photographer SallyStepniewski captured some awesome jump shots as participants were encouraged to 'Leap For The Leap Year'. Amazingly the on course acrobatics didn't slow everyone down, 78 new PB's attest to that. We welcomed 28 first timers and several tourists including runners from Warrigal and Queensland.
