Lochiel parkrun – Event number 4 – 26th September 2015

Again we were treated with fine and sunny conditions for today's parkrun with a good turnout of runners celebrating their City-Bay runs last weekend.

We had visitors from Maribyrnong and Hobart, it was great to welcome them to the event. Even more exciting, was that we introduced parkrun to 23 brand new people.

Congratulations to Grace Downing and Gemma Greenwood, both JW11-14 on joining the 50 club.

Thank you to our volunteers, without you, we couldn't put the event on.
