It was a cool and still morning, great for running. Jurgens Muller was our first finisher for the men in a time of 18:17. Lisa Stanton-Smith was our first finisher for the women in a time of 20:14. David Howes accepted his certificate celebrating his 50th run the prior week and this week Angus Macaulay flying under the radar ran his 50th run. Congratulations on being Maribyrnong parkrun's newest members of the 50 club. Junior runner Claudia Dobson also ran her 10th run today joining the Junior 10 club. Congratulations Claudia a great effort.
