Event #150- We love milestones…a sea of blue! 5th November 2016

Hi everyone,

We had big numbers again this week with a few tourists (23) and 14 first time to parkrun. We hope you enjoyed our course and come visit again soon!

It was a huge morning with many of our regulars wearing blue to help Lily celebrate her 100th parkrun! The post run mentos were a hit. Congratulations Lily!

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers this week: Abby O'HAGAN  •  Christopher DENYER  •  Damian DRUERY  •  Delaine SWALLOW  •  Eddie FABIAN  •  Jenny REEDMAN  •  Kristy BOYLE  •  Liam WYATT  •  Lisa GILLEN  •  Mia FORSINGDAL  •  Shareen FORSINGDAL! The run wouldn't happen without you.  If you haven't volunteered yet, please consider while the weather is warmer...it's a great excuse to dodge a hot run!

Please remember that we have a huge carpark just 400m up the road...it makes for a great warmup and also ensures you have parked legally. Unfortunately, visibility is reduced for those leaving the close carpark when cars are parked on the grass/dirt. We would like everyone to get home safely.

Our 3rd birthday is coming up very soon...you have until 26th November to sort out your costume...rainbow theme...so get started (if you like a good excuse to dress up!) Thanks to The Baker's Corner at Kenrose stree, Carina for supplying our birthday cake!

Make sure you have checked out the photos from this week,

Jenny

Event # 148 – Celebrating – 22nd October 2016

235 parkrunners out in Minnippi lapping up the sun and having a run.  One very speedy runner, Liam Boudin set a new Male course record of 15:08! How exciting!

Can you believe, no milestone runs!  Don't worry, there are a few coming up.  If you have something blue, throw it on to support regular runner Lily Parons who will be celebrating her 100th run on November 5th.  Do you have a milestone coming up?  Let us know so we can give you a shout out in our morning brief, and don't forget to get your photo with the milestone "shirt".

Another very important milestone is coming up.... Minnippi parkrun's 3rd birthday on November 26. We'll be having a rainbow theme, so come in all colours of the rainbow and help us celebrate.  Feel free to bring along a share plate and we can all have some little post run snacks and a good chat with fellow runners.

Other very exciting news... Minnippi parkrun will be running on Christmas Day and New Years Day at 7am. So you can get some extra runs towards your next milestone... Don't forget the added benefit of not feeling so guilty when you over indulge on Christmas pudding!

Happy Running

Serena
