Mosman parkrun – Event number 73 – 25th July 2015

Event #73 was a beautiful crisp morning for a parkrun. There were 44 runners in total, 8 of whom were either brand new parkrunners or were new to Mosman parkrun - a few were parkrun tourists from the UK! We also had 7 unknown runners. Please remember your PRINTED barcode if you would like to receive a time. No barcode = no time. However, if you'd like to remain 'unknown' that's OK too.

We welcomed two new members to the Junior 10 Club. Jasper Shearing ran his 10th parkrun today and has run all 10 of his parkruns with Mosman parkrun! Finn Botto Davoren completed  his 10th parkrun last week smashing it out with a PB. Well done to both of you and welcome to the club!

PBs were smashed by 8 parkrunners - perhaps the delicious ginger cake made by Aileen Davidson spurred them on to run faster to the finish! CONGRATS to - Amy McMahon, Cassandra Bell, Edwina Duffy, Gina Champan-Davies, Ginta Viliunas, Lauren Heddle, Lee Lee, and Oliver Wellings.

Of course, event number 73 wouldn't have been possible without the help of our awesome volunteers. To volunteer for future events, please email us
