Manjimup parkrun #256 9th February 2019

Much smaller list of parkrunners today with many enjoying the Busselton running festival. Trust all our tourists enjoyed the change in scenery. However we still managed to attract 11 hearty soles who congratulated Ambrose Foley on his 100th run.
We had a visitor from Scotland, William Moore (home run is Camperdown parkrun in Dundee). Will was staying in Bridgetown with in-laws and is nearing the end of a 6 month visit with family and has seen an enormous amount Western Australia in his stay.
Just a few notes re Ambrose. His first Manjimup parkrun was on 30th January 2016 when he was the 6th finisher so it has taken just over 3 years to log up his 100 runs, of which 92 have been at Manjimup. During this time Ambrose has been our first finisher of 70 occasions.  I am sure you will agree this is a pretty remarkable achievement and will take some beating.  Ambrose's PB is a very credible 18.24 and holds 10th place in the fastest time league at King Jarrah. While Ambrose is about to head off to Curtin Uni to commence studies to become a professional engineer no doubt we will all get to see Ambrose at future parkruns at King Jarrah.

Good to welcome back Courtney Blakers along with young puppy. Thanks to Connie for the thought to bring some nice treats to mark Ambrose's miletone run.

Finally a special thanks to our volunteers today. As always it wouldn't be possible to keep parkrun going without your support. So big hand to Kathryn Rosinski, Julia Green, Wendy Menzie, Finn and Lilli Sundahl and Russell Candy
