Lochiel parkrun – Event number 5 – 3rd October 2015

Happy International parkrun Day!

I'm sitting here writing this with "Run to paradise" playing on the radio; very appropriate I think.

It was a warm one this morning, probably the first of many to come over the next six months. Don't forget to hydrate fully, especially if you are planning on having a couple of celebratory drinks during the Grand Final.

Good luck to all parkrunners competing in the Master's Games starting in Adelaide today.

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers this morning. You guys ROCK!
