Congratulations to the 207 of you who braved the chance of rain this morning to get your parkrun fix! Your speedy first finishers this morning were Nicholas Horn (18:18) and Shiloh Watts (19:05). The amazing volunteers who made it all happen were Les Williams, Laurie Williams, Tara McMahon, Danya McMahon, Tom Hitchen, Alicia Rooney, Chun Fei Lo and your stand in photographer, Allan Davis. A special mention must go today to the two parkrunners who stopped out on course to assist a fellow runner having an asthma attack. The runner mentioned is now fine, but thanks you for your assistance.
A mention must also go today to what seemed like a huge number of first timers! Congrats on completing your first ever parkrun, and welcome to the cult that will take over your Saturday mornings FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES! For those who asked for it, you can purchase the handy little parkrun key tags here: http://www.bentlogic.com.au/parkrun.html Finally, we still have one spot left on next week's roster for a photographer so please let us know if you can help us out. See you next week!
