Two weeks til the PJ party – Event no 52

This week we had 182 runners, walkers and posers(!) - 12 of you were first timers and 41 recorded new Personal Bests - well done to all of you for getting out of bed. We just need another 13 new runners next week and we will have had 2,000 different people come run at Mitchelton this year!

We have two weeks until our first birthday and it is going to be a big celebration. Tim Mander our local MP, is pulling on his chef outfit and cooking a BBQ for us. Thanks Tim. It's a PJ party theme - which makes it easy for all of you to roll out of bed and down Osborne Rd to the start line (please think seriously about some deodorant though!).

We also have some great prizes donated from local businesses who support their local parkrun.

See you all next week. Here are the results from this week -
