Lilydale Lake parkrun – Event #319

It was a wet and soggy morning but that didn’t dampen the spirits of our newest Run Director, Sally.
Sally has been waiting in the wings while Covid, and then Melbourne’s snap lockdown has delayed her Run Directing debut but we are excited that she finally got her time to shine and we are grateful to have her as part of the team.

It was also a special day for Laura Gorton, who joined us for parkrun before she was off to get married later in the day! We hope the weather improved for the wedding!
