This week's report courtesy of Stephen D.
Well it was the first time in a year that we've had such a foggy morning! It was quite lovely (and a bit surreal) which made it all the more fun to experience. The stillness that allowed the fog also meant it was actually not as cool as other recent mornings.
This week 117 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 5 were first timers and 13 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part.
Participants doing their first parkrun ever included
- Benjamin Blackburn
- Richard Blackburn
- Eric Chan
- Steve Kilroe-Smith
Mack Clarkson (VM45-49) achieved the highest age grade this week with 75.46%, followed by junior Chloe Linnett (JW10) with a 72.93% age grade and who was also the first female across the line on her 25th parkrun!
Louise McCall (VW60-64) has been regularly achieving a high age grade and this week was another great one for her with 71.24%.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Mullum Mullum parkrun Results Page.
Congratulations to the following people on reaching their special parkrun milestones (and getting a free parkrun t-shirt, white for junior 10, red for 50 and black for 100!):
- Junior 10 parkrun milestone
- Max Sourivong
- 50 parkrun milestone
- Caitlin Bey, a junior, with 40 being done at Mullum Mullum and three volunteer stints
- 100 parkrun milestone
- Andrew Lyon (63 at MM) Andrew is also a Run Director at Mullum Mullum and has voluntered an amazing 38 times with timer being the role he has done most (13 times).
There were three participants who did their 99th event today! Who will get to 100 first out of Susan Stephen, Andrea Gardiner and Megan Bushby?
Congratulations to all on their terrific achievements!
Please let us know about any milestones you're celebrating/have celebrated at Mullum Mullum via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and send us a photo (or link to one) if you are happy for us to publish it.
Thanks again to those parkrunners that volunteers this week. All our scanners and the timer are required to use the updated parkrun Virtual Volunteer app on their own phones and it continues to be working much more efficiently than the old equipment that was used.
Without the 14 people below helping out we wouldn't have been able to run parkrun this week. Thanks all!

We have plenty of vacancies that we need to fill for the weeks ahead for volunteers and we'd love to have your help! It's easy, fun and everything is explained. Could you please have a look at the roster online and email us (email@example.com) if you are interested in one of the best aspects of parkrun!
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning at Mullum Mullum parkrun!
