Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event # 323

This week saw the 7th anniversary of Lillydale Lake parkrun. While the celebrations were a little different this year due to Covid regulations, it was still great to spend the morning with 245 parkrunners. A lot of you got in the spirit of the ‘Spots and Stripes’ theme-including some dogs who joined the dress ups. We found Wally, had some prisoners complete a 5km freedom dash, saw a leopard on the loose and some football rivalry! Special mention to the dominos who managed not to get knocked down.Lillydale Lake parkrun
