Event no 58 – we are cancelled on 2 August

 

It was a cold start to this week's parkrun, in fact the coldest morning in Brisbane since parkrun started in Australia! I'm sure we all agree our volunteers need extra thanks this week for turning up in the cold, Thank you to the Run Director Jo and her volunteer team of Allison, Laurene, Lisa, Tara, Veronica, Amanda and Jason.

Well done to all the 171 people who ran with us this morning. Special mention goes to the 22 first times who ventured out for the first time on the coldest parkrun Brisbane day ever! Extra congratulations to our first finishers Jeremy Solley (17.17) and Dena Galbraith-Snedic (23.40).

Just another reminder we are cancelled on 2nd August due to another event on the path so a great opportunity to head to one of the other wonderful events in our area for some parkrun tourism. 

Full results and a complete event history can be found on the Mitchelton parkrun results page. If you want to be a volunteer at parkrun, email us at mitcheltonshelpers@parkrun.com to help out for future events.

 

Cancellation – 2 August

Just a reminder, we run every Saturday - rain, hail or shine - at 7am except for Sat 2 August when we will be cancelled due to another event in the park.

Everyone is welcome at all other Brisbane parkruns - Bunyaville, Sandgate, New Farm, South Bank and North Lakes are all about 5-30 mins from Mitchy so why not check them out instead!

 

1st Anniversary – Event 54 – Run Report

Saturday 14th was Mitchelton parkrun’s first birthday and if you missed it you missed a big morning. It was a PJ party theme and we had 348 runners run PJ PBs! We also broke our NYD attendance record and the course record was smashed!

It has been a big year in parkrun terms – it seems like only yesterday that I contacted Tim Oberg, asking him how I could get involved. What I really mean though was how do I get on the Run Director team at a parkrun like South Bank or somewhere. He put me in touch with Gareth Saunders,  who said, here's one I prepared earlier - Mitchelton parkrun is ready to go, all you need to do is measure the course at Teralba Park and you can start up in about 6 weeks time. Seriously, it was that easy.

Thanks to our voluneers, Jo Cootes, Leanne Forrest, Mark Huth, Sue Bamber, Jeanetter Webster, Ken Blackwell & Jackie Heath as well as our pacers Greg Beerling, Rick Derek Thorpey, Jason Hill, Jess Frisch and Laura Heinrich.

cake

We had the best looking and most delicious parkrun cake baked by our very own Run Director Kiara. We also had a  free sausage sizzle from our local MP Tim Mander afterwards, banan’s from Charlies Fruit & a massive prize draw with over $2,500 prizes from the a massive number of local supporters. Thank you all.

ON SAFETY - Please remember that we share the park with other users so please be courteous and keep left on the path. Watch out for the works that are ongoing along Kedron Brook – currently around the 2km part of the path near the cow paddock / South Pine Rd bridge. You are our eyes and ears on the Course so if someone is injured or needs assistance please stay with them and call for help.

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.
