Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event # 327

A fresh start to parkrun this week with a light dusting of frost on the grass. This did not stop 203 parkrunners from enjoying a run, walk, jog, hop, skip or jump for a couple laps of the lake.
This week being National Volunteer week - we'd like to thank everyone who has volunteered at parkrun over the years - all 573 of you volunteering an incredible 3,969 times. Parkrun would not happen if it wasn't for you! We still have a number of vacancies in the coming weeks.  Please head on over to for the future roster page and email with your desired role and date.

Awesome achievements: Congratulations to everyone who managed a new Personal Best time this week, with a special shout-out to anyone who has already completed more than 30 local parkruns/10 parkruns for juniors. A couple of families sharing in the PB celebrations this week.
